Honey 2013

Yo kids - here is the honey from this year on the left and the honey from last year on the right. I collected this early and probably more locust/sourwood and then on the right more tulip poplar and blackberry.

SOURWOOD: Sourwood Honey is rarely sold outside the area in which it is produced because of supply and demand. Sourwood honey is light to medium in color. Usually mild in flavor, this honey varies from year to year. It is considered one of the best honeys by many and is produced mainly in the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains. Sourwood is a tree that grows 40 to 60 feet and blooms from late June through July. The honey is definitely NOT sour!
