Spanish Orange Blossom Honey

$ 20.00

Tasting Notes: Gorgeous sunrise amber color with bright, bold notes of ripe citrus balanced with lighter notes of white blossom.

From the famous citrus groves of València, Spain, our Spanish Orange Blossom Raw Honey is in a class all its own. Bright and sweet, tasting this citrusy monofloral honey is like savoring the sunshine of springtime in Southern Spain.

València, Spain is famous for sweet, juicy oranges that are prized the world over. Our Valèncian Spanish Orange Blossom honey conveys the spirit of this tangy-sweet terroir, with ripe orange notes that are surprisingly bold for a monofloral honey. 

Using Your Raw Spanish Orange Blossom Honey at Home

When you pair this honey with Manchego cheese or fresh fruit and yogurt, you can almost imagine sitting on the terrace overlooking the orange groves as bees and butterflies fly by. 

We also recommend this honey as a natural sweetener in sangria or a pot of Egyptian Goddess for a true Mediterranean experience. 

Available in 12oz jars.

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.
