Linden Basswood Honey is very rare. This honey comes from sweet aromatic nectar-rich basswood trees (also known as linden trees, depending on your region) and has a sweet hay+herbal flavor and aroma - it's delicious! Perfect for a cup of flavorful tea, or even served over tart gelato for dessert.
Note: Our Basswood Honey is pure, raw, unamended, and may crystalize as a result. This is to be expected of natural honey and does not impact the usability of the product.
The intensity and the taste of Linden Basswood Honey is stronger than the color indicates. The rule of thumb is the darker the honey the stronger the flavor: this is not the case with Linden Honey. Right after harvest, Linden Honey is a greenish color; in time it becomes clear to yellow-amber.
This honey is traditionally used in folk medicine to speed along recovery of sore throats and colds. Use it in teas and nightcaps to ease the itchy throat that comes with wintertime illness. Linden Honey pairs well with citrus sorbet or gelato, greek yogurt, and herbal teas.
