Almond + Cherry Blossom Honey is out of the ordinary

This honey is a good kind of unusual. It even has a good and unusual story behind it. Almond crops are among the top of the list that requires honeybees for pollination. When the big beekeepers go west to pollinate the almond blossoms they usually discard the bitter almond honey that follows, they characterize it as inedible. Every once in a while the planets align and the timing is such that the cherry blossoms arrive at the very same time as the almond blossoms. This honey is the bi-product of trees blossoming at the same time. We did not mix this honey or flavor it with natural or synthetic flavors or additives.

Almond honey is very bitter and almost inedible.

Rather than the bitter and almost inedible almond honey, with the addition of the cherry blossom, we have found this honey to be an interesting combination of bitter-sweet. Try it on ice cream, with dark chocolate and fruit or use it in a hot beverage.

Every Honey Tells a Story

I started beekeeping six years ago and covered all of the details in my blog and my YouTube channel. My mentor, Dale Large, a fifty-plus-year beekeeping veteran has taken the lead with my apiary and I am his devoted protégé. I am blessed and humbled by the amazing honey that the bees are making – from our farming efforts, and continue to expand to increase the amount of honey that I can offer from my own apiary on Chesterhaven Beach Farm.

About Small Batch Artisanal and Varietal Honey

Like wine reflects the complexity of the soil and weather, honey tells the story of the hive surroundings in the same way. Our Waxing Kara® honey is nature’s blend from Chesterhaven Beach Farm. Each year, we add more plants and trees to support the bees. This is a years-long process, and each year the honey will be different.

Varietal Honeys (made with nectar from one type of crop) are true labors of love by the beekeeper, who carefully sets hives in the center of cultivated fields for bees to provide pollination services just for the brief time of blossoming. Since bees will fly up to six miles to find nectar, the challenge in achieving varietal honey is to provide enough crops of one type to satisfy the hive.

We don’t do any fancy blending, colorizing or infusing, nor do we pasteurize or boil honey. Pasteurization destroys all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and minerals in honey. We sell only raw honey that’s been minimally filtered. We grow our own and buy from other small growers to keep pace with growing demand for honey in our region. We bottle, label and package by hand at our Honey House in Owings Mills, Maryland.

Care of Honey

Honey is a “perfect” food with an indefinite shelf life. Store in airtight glass, away from direct sunlight. Do not refrigerate. It’s not unusual for some honey to crystalize over time. It’s not a bad thing, it proves the honey is raw. If cloudy or crystallized honey doesn’t appeal to you, reconstitute by placing the glass jar in a pan of water that has been brought to a boil and removed from heat.

  1. Jay D

    Such a unique flavor-sweet and a little bitter (like dark chocolate) at the same time! Definitely a favorite of mine.

  2. Eric Samuelson

    This honey has so much going for it. You will be amazed at the depth of flavor. It has sweet yet bitter with fruity notes. Try putting it on vanilla ice cream. You will be blown away!!!

    • Kara Brook

      Thank you Eric! We’re so glad you enjoyed the honey. It sure is special.

  3. Clarissa (verified owner)

    I could eat this by itself. The honey is a bit darker in color and richer tasting than most honeys. It’s like regular honey’s grown up and more sophisticated cousin. I’ll keep it stocked from now on.

    • Kara Brook

      Hey Clarissa, What a fantastic review! Thank you! So glad you enjoyed the honey. Thanks for sharing! kb

    I ordered this honey in the summertime for gifts – and what a hit! Everyone has loved it! My sister says she enjoys a spoonful of it when she has a dry throat, too. I’ll have to buy some for myself!!!
