From the slopes of Mount Etna comes our sweet citrusy honey made by happy little Italian (or should we say Sicilian?) bees.  They busy themselves pollinating citrus groves and create this light, fragrant golden honey.  We recommend trying the honey over aged sheep's milk cheeses, drizzled over pistachios and vanilla gelato, or swirled into almond butter as a garnish to your favorite smoothie bowl or yogurt.  This honey carries sunshine where ever it goes.

Natural raw honey has the seemingly magical capability of spontaneously "setting" or crystallizing. Each honey will crystallize at a different rate based on the sugar and water composition. With its wonderful texture and more concentrated flavor, we recommend crystallized honey as a delicious spread over toast! If liquid honey suits you better, simply heat a warm water bath to 100 degrees and remove the pan from the heat. Submerge your jar with the cap removed and allow to stand 20-30 minutes. It will be ready to pour again! An uncertain amount of time will pass before the honey may need de-crystallization again, and then simply repeat these steps as needed.
