“Fantastic honey is like a superb wine: sophisticated, complex, distinctive.” Oprah Magazine
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 Branches 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.
Please note: crystallization is normal for unheated and unfiltered pure 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.
For those of us who have grown up in California, summertime is often associated with the picking of wild blackberries along its many roadsides. For a very short moment, the thorny vines shoot tiny white flowers allowing the bees to gather their yearly nectar. Light amber in color, this honey has a very floral bouquet with a silky smooth texture.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: With a distinctive fruit flavor, this honey will make a wonderful spread for warm toast and muffins or a good addition to marinades and dressings or for use in baking.
