About Our Citrus Blossom Honey:
Gathered from California?s Central Valley where citrus trees grow in abundance, the honey gathered here is pale in color with an aroma of an orange tree in bloom. Its taste is sweet and seductive and brings back memories of our youth when we sucked out the nectar of blooming citrus flowers! This has always been one of our Katz family favorites.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: Enjoy on morning toast, over granola or plain yogurt. Use in baking with apples and pears, or roasting winter root vegetables.
About Our Honey
Bees produce honey from the nectar of blooming plants, but the nectar produced by one flower will be different than that of another flower. Our mission is to seek out distinctive California flora which produce honeys that have the qualities in aroma, taste, texture and color reflective of their particular species of flower.
All of our honeys are gathered directly from the hives and bottled unpasteurized, thus maintaining the multitude of health benefits associated with honey that are often lost in traditional commercial honey from overheating to eliminate crystallization.
As many of you know, it has become increasingly difficult for the fantastically hard-working honeybees to gather the nectar from dwindling floral sources given the drought in California, the ongoing impact of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and the increasingly harmful effects of habitat loss. We work closely with beekeeper friends to bring you the highest quality and best tasting honey that is currently available.
Please note: Crystallization is normal for unheated and unfiltered honey such as ours, but honey is good forever because its antibiotic properties keep it from spoiling. You can improve the quality of crystallized honey by placing the opened jar in hot water bath and stirring it until it liquefies.
