Varietal (Type of Honey)
Wildflower honey, also referred to as polyfloral honey, gets its name because the bees producing it extract nectar from multiple (or sometimes unknown) plant sources, typically within a few miles of their hive.
Unlike single nectar source honeys (aka monofloral honey), the taste of wildflower honey is much more likely to differ from region to region, or potentially, change throughout the year. Different geographic regions yield unique tasting honey since the local plant species that bees collect nectar from varies by region. Different types of plants produce nectars that yield unique flavor and nutritional profiles. For a similar reason, many people recommend trying local honey for allergies.
While the taste will be dynamic from location to location, wildflower honey has been described as a bit bolder than your typical monofloral honey, and will generally present a more complex flavor profile.
At Neighborhood Hive, we sell only raw and unfiltered honey, and our Texas wildflower honey is no different. Unlike most of the highly-processed honey you'll find in your local grocery store, our products are never pasteurized and have only had wax and other large particles removed before bottling. By refusing to process their honey, our beekeeper partners preserve all the good stuff found naturally in raw honey - vitamins, minerals, pollen, enzymes, and antioxidants.
Due to particulates (like pollen) suspended in raw honey, it’s more likely than processed honey to crystallize. This shouldn’t be cause for alarm though, since crystallized honey is perfectly fine to eat. Instead, you should see this as confirmation that your honey is the real deal.
If you'd like, you can easily restore the consistency of crystallized honey by submerging the bottle into some warm water for 15-30 minutes or until it appears less viscous and more liquid.
At Neighborhood Hive, we partner directly with the beekeepers and apiaries that harvest the honey we sell. Accordingly, this Texas raw honey – harvested from hives around the northern Dallas, TX suburbs – will ship directly from the beekeeper in Blue Ridge, TX [ zip code 75424 ].
