Purple Loosestrife Honey

$7.50
 

Purple Loosestrife produces a honey crop once maybe every 5-8 years here at Ames Farm. The nectar and honey has a noticeable neon, orange to yellow color. The flavor profile has an initial butterscotch flavor and aroma that unfold into a floral component and then leaves a slightly bitter finish reminiscent of Italian Chestnut honey.

This is one honey that changes in flavor in storage and the bitterness is most notable when its fresh in the fall. This honey  is a cheese mongers dream accompaniment, and pairs well with strong flavored cheeses.
