Filled with either our Summer Sweet Wildflower or Smoky Mountain Wildflower honey, straight from the Killer Bees Honey home apiary.
2022 SUMMER SWEET Wildflower Honey is a midsummer batch from the Killer Bees Honey home apiary. It has the same intense, robust flavor of our signature spring, raw Smoky Mountain Wildflower Honey, only slightly sweeter. There are several reasons for this. First, it possesses 20% clover nectar. Secondly, as the tulip poplar bloom ages, it produces more glucose. Lastly, the hive girls finished off the honey combs with sourwood which was just beginning to bloom when we pulled the supers. You thus get a rich, caramel flavor ending. All of these factors make for a robust, but sweeter addition to our 2021 spring honey lineup. No limits on this seriously delightful honey - the bees were dangerously busy on this floral source!
With a Pfund scale of 73mm, it's a beautiful, semi-dark "light amber" nectar presenting with a semi-translucent, apricot color. A phenomenally low moisture level 0f 15.1% creates a rich, sweet flavor with a velvety smooth texture.
2022 SMOKY MOUNTAIN Wildflower Honey has an AMAZING light golden color. Killer Bees Honey from our Apiary is different from last year's honey. This is an intense, polyfloral wildflower honey with light, mineral rich notes and tremendous reach. All this as a result to the bees blending of tulip poplar and hundreds of other varietal spring nectars. The spicy finish is no doubt due to the chestnut trees hidden deep within the Pisgah forest. This honey will stand up to any food pairing, or just as well all by itself.
We do not buy honey from other beekeepers, and have our honey tested by independent labs to ensure it is 100% toxin-free. Never blended, flavored, ultra-filtered or pasteurized. Gravity filtered to keep in all of the goodness the bees intended.
