1-lb Glass Jar Sage Honey (RAW, UNHEATED, UNFILTERED)

This is our number one product.  The best all-purpose honey. 

Heavy body but tastes light and fruity, pairs flawlessly with all food and beverages.  Sourced from our bees on the wild mountain ranges of California's Central Coast.  Sage honey production is strongly dependent on abundant winter and spring precipitation and is only produced in certain years.  

This batch is from the extremely difficult spring of 2017, when torrential rainfall pounded California and made life difficult for the beekeeper.  Strong spring winds slammed the bee hives and cut their potential for sage honey production short, but the bees still came through with limited amounts of this precious liquid gold. 

Flavor profile is mild and well defined by notes of apples, peaches, plums, and bubblegum.  The texture of the 2017 sage honey is partially crystallized, consisting of large crystals suspended in the liquid.
