The Palmetto plant grows throughout Florida in sandy coastal lands and is distinguished by white flowers and brown berries. Palmetto is one of the oldest known types of honey in Florida, used by Native Americans. It has a rich-golden color with a sweet, citrusy, caramel taste and robust flavor. Palmetto honey is an exquisite gourmet honey that is often not heard of due to its short harvest season. Palmetto honey compliments tea, cured meats, glazes when baking and hard cheeses.
About the beekeeper:
I am a third generation beekeeper. I have always wanted to work with my hands, be outside and give back to the Earth in some way – do something for the overall greater good! I love the natural benefits honey has to offer. 750 local bees flew over 55,000 miles and visited about 2 million flowers to produce just one pound of this honey. I extract it by hand and bottle it with love. I hope you savor every last drop! – Amy
Do Not Feed Honey to Infants Under One Year. Honey may become crystallized (coarse or granulated) over time. Crystallization is the natural process in which liquid honey becomes solid. It is best to store honey at room temperature in a dry cupboard to avoid crystallization.
