Our wildflower honey comes from the beautiful spring wildflowers and budding trees located near Saratoga Springs, NY. Wildflower, or poly-floral, honey from this area is teeming with aster and goldenrod. This wildflower honey is light and floral and yields a tangy, floral finish. It’s Saratoga Springs in a honey bottle! Pairs well with our floral teas such as Saratoga Wedding, Madam Katrina of Yaddo, Love Potion, and Yaddo Rose Garden.
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.
