Buckwheat honey is distinctly dark in color and has a rich, full flavor reminiscent of blackstrap molasses.
As a general rule, darker honeys tend to be higher in antioxidant compounds than lighter ones. Because of this characteristic, darker honeys also tend to be higher in mineral content, on average, as compared to lighter honeys.
The buckwheat plant is an excellent honey source, sometimes planted by beekeepers specifically for honey production. The blossoms are rich in nectar and blooming can continue into the fall.
Honey will naturally crystallize over time, which does not diminish the quality or flavor. If desired, you may heat gently in a warm water bath to liquefy.
Unfiltered and raw (not heated over 115°F) our honey still contains traces of pollen and propolis, and has no additives.
