Idaho Snowberry Honey

by Anne Paddock

Marvel at the beauty and simplicity of nature’s perfect sweet. Honey really is one of nature’s miracles transforming nature’s nectar and flower dust into liquid gold.

Honeybees are the original locavores and artisan producers of food that bears the imprint of where the honey is made with the not so subtle nuances of flavor, sweetness, color and consistency revealed in each batch. Whether the bees gathered the nectar and pollen from the blossoms on the Tupelo trees in Florida or the blossoms from the Snowberry bush in Idaho, each honey bears the  unmistakable imprint of where it was made. Hence, the types of honey often reflect the source of the nectar and pollen be it wildflower, lavender, clover, citrus orange blossom, or the Idaho Snowberry.
