Our Raw Buckwheat honey comes from the mountains of the Angeles National Forest from California wild Buckwheat. Although related, this plant differs from the cultivated buckwheat plants grown for buckwheat flour and grain.
Our Buckwheat honey has a wonderfully smooth “round” flavor with no sharp edges. Although it is a bit stronger in flavor than any of our lighter-in-color honey, it still is not strong. The best way to describe its flavor is “soothing.”
Buckwheat honey has MANY uses; it can replace brown sugar in a recipe and is also a great substitution for syrup, adding richness to your pancakes, waffles, and French toast that you cannot get with typical syrups. This honey also works well as a skin soothing and smoothing facial! We call it the “Manuka honey of California!” Do you like hot toddies? This honey pairs perfectly with whiskey!
