Spanish Wild Lavender Honey

$ 20.00

Tasting notes: Rich, amber color with sweet floral notes of southern European summers.

In the mountains at the far western reaches of Spain, fields are vibrant with wildflowers and among them, cantueso, or wild lavender blooms. This wonderfully floral raw honey is as exquisite as the area of origin and a tasting experience to savor. This enchanting and wonderfully delicious floral honey is produced from bees pollinating the lavender buds in the early summer.

Using Your Wild Lavender Raw Honey at Home

Try this honey drizzled over sharp sheep milk cheeses, in your favorite evening herbal tisane (think: Field of Dreams, La Provençale, Chamomile) or over vanilla ice cream with berries and dark chocolate.

Available in a 12oz glass jar.

(Please Note: Our Wild Lavender honey is not infused with lavender. While delightfully floral in taste, this monofloral honey should not be confused with infused lavender honeys we have carried previously. If you'd like to see infused lavender honey come back to the shelves, send us a suggestion - we love to hear from you!)

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.
