KATZ CITRUS BLOSSOM HONEY TUB
(2.75 lb...equivalent to 2.75 jars!)
Honey bees look for flower nectar and pollen to feed on depending on the time of year and what is in bloom. In late winter and early spring in California’s Central Valley citrus trees offer a plentiful and welcoming aroma for gathering this sweet and seductive honey redolent of the floral source from which it came.
Bright, floral notes. Scents of vanilla and honeysuckle in both the nose and taste. Light amber gold in color with a rich, balanced taste on the palette.
Enjoy on morning toast or scones, or over granola, oatmeal or plain yogurt. Use in baking with apples, pears and walnuts, or in dressings and marinades. Mix a splash with our KATZ Honey or Apple Cider Vinegar and toss with your favorite seasonal vegetables...or just simply eat by the spoonful.

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 KATZ 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.
As many of you know, it has become increasingly difficult for the fantastically hard-working honeybees to gather the nectar from dwindling floral sources given the drought in California, the ongoing impact of Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) and the increasingly harmful effects of habitat loss. We work closely with beekeeper friends to bring you the highest quality and best tasting honey that is currently available.
Please note: Crystallization is normal for unheated and unfiltered 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.
