Introducing Sourwood honey

Posted by blueberrytalk on July 25, 2011

We have planted 18 sourwood trees along the border of our farm to add to the flavour of our farm honey. Unless you placed a special order it is unlikely you have tasted this honey as it is usually sold out in the eastern United States where it is produced.

“Sourwood honey is prized by connoisseurs and  honey purists worldwide. It has won best honey in the world twice at the presitigious Apimondia World Honey Show. Sourwood honey is extra-light to light amber in color and crystallizes slowly. It is extremely aromatic, with a distinctive honey flavor of anise and spice. It also has a sweet aroma of anise. It has a persistent sweet and pleasant astringent aftertaste.” Source:
