KATZ BRANCHES RASPBERRY FLOWER HONEY 16 oz. (that is one pound!) $14
About Our Raspberry Flower Honey:
This is like welcoming back an old friend…after three long years of empty harvests when we just were not able to collect any of our KATZ Raspberry Flower Honey…we finally have a new batch! Given another drought year and the ongoing issues with honeybees and their habitat, I was not yet expecting the return of the raspberry floral source. But alas we now have gathered enough of this truly extraordinary nectar to offer it for as long as it lasts.
Light amber in color, it has that unique floral tone that immediately announces it is gathered from the raspberry flower with hints of fruitiness embedded in the aroma.
In flavor, it is truly harmonious and balances pronounced sweetness of the berry with a piquancy that makes for such an appealing 'culinary' offering. For those who know their honey, you understand that it is very rare mono floral honey where you get some of the nuances of the fruit source in the taste, as we do in this case.
SERVING SUGGESTIONS: This is a delicious baking honey that pairs well with fruit. With biscuits and rolls, certainly a part of many upcoming holiday feasts, why not drizzle over warm for an ethereal treat. We have increasingly been replacing a good percentage of sugar in many recipes with honey and the balanced “sweet and tart” aspects of this offering makes it an ideal 'tool' for such a transition. And, of course, don’t forget to add a bowl to your cheese platters!

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 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.
