Tasting Notes: Golden amber in color with medium-bodied viscosity and subtle notes of sweet-tart summer fruit.
One of our berry favorites, our raspberry blossom honey comes to us by way of Washington State, home of the largest raspberry field in the country. Busy bees spend early summer pollinating the sweet raspberry bush blossoms to give us this gorgeous, golden-amber monofloral honey.
Sweet and fruity, this raspberry blossom honey is the ideal addition to fruit parfaits, fruity teas, and summer cocktails or mocktails.
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.
