Good Friends Are As Sweet As Honey ~

Yes. ...

"Good friends ARE as sweet as honey"

Winnie the Pooh

A bit spicy, woodsy, mossy, light & complex.

I know that seems like a contradiction in terms but the flavor is very hard to decribe.

The honey we've harvested this year is unlike anything we've ever purchased.

Most commmercial beekeepers sell their honey & then it's processed. Usually, that means that it's heated to kill any live pollen or organisms. This also means that it can't be sold as 'raw" honey.

Here's a photo of honey in the frame. It's capped meaning that it's covered with wax or "sealed" by the bees. I do "crush & drain" so everything in the frame is natural that's created by the bees & then I cut out the solid wax sealed honey, crush it & drain through a filter.

Here's the honey cut out of the frame.

Here's the crushed honey & wax in the filter. It's draining into a 5 gallon bucket.

The honey this year is very light in color & of a sweet & spicy taste.
