,From the mountain ranges of Extremadura, Spain comes our wild lavender raw honey.  Also known as canteuso, wild lavender in part of the expansive fields of wild flowers that roll in this beautiful southwestern region of Spain. This enchanting and wonderfully delicious floral honey is produced from bees pollinating the lavender buds in the early summer.

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.

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.
