I was looking for an alternative sweetener for my teas and this fit the bill perfectly. So far that's exclusively what I've been using it for, but with its clean flavor I bet it would go great in absolutely everything. It's a bit too sweet for me to eat it by itself. If you have a sweet tooth you may think differently. Try it!

Never thought I would like a honey as much as Tupelo, but this one is just delicious. Will definitely order a larger jar.

My fiance bought the 3oz jar when we were visiting Savannah and he is obsessed. So much so that I just ordered him another jar despite living near a Farmer's Market with plenty of local honey. Also a little bit goes a long way - he is still working through the first jar. He would highly recommend!

Being an herbalist, I’m impressed with its competitiveness with Manuka. To be blunt, it’s beyond delicious, too.

I love this honey. I purchased it for it's immune building effects. It's great by the teaspoon, drizzled over toast or to sweeten tea.

Bought the 3oz jar when I was in Charleston a few weeks ago, and it's already gone. I kept finding myself with a spoon in hand until there was nothing left! When my husband reminded me his mother's birthday was coming up, I immediately thought of and purchased the 12oz Palmetto Honey. Do not pass this one up-- you'll definitely regret it!

Bought 12 oz jar about month ago. Two thirds of its gone already. Great on cheese and apples but also baked apples and French toast.

We visited Charleston in May 2014. It was a great trip and we loved the SC coast. A stop to the honey story brought us to the Palmetto Honey and we were taken with the fantastic and nutty flavor. We are ordering our 3rd jar. I use it for tea and toast. However, the best treat is to drizzel over sliced fresh fruit. Both the fruit flavor and the honey flavor come out strongly. Thanks for making this available to the World. Ted and Joe.

I highly recommend Palmetto Honey not only for cooking but for health reasons also.
Saw Palmetto Honey
Honeybees make Saw Palmetto Honey from Serenoa repens, a short palm tree topped by an enormous crown of fan-shaped leaves. If you've been anywhere in Florida or along the coast of Alabama, Louisiana, Georgia or southern South Carolina, you've probably seen it.
Saw Palmetto Honey is the oldest known honey in the Sunshine State and is thought of as a hidden treasure in those parts. It is packed with enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, acids, and phytonutrients, making it good for our digestive and immune systems. This can be said for all high-quality honey, but darker honeys can contain up to 20 times more nutrients than lighter honeys. Some believe Saw Palmetto Honey rivals Manuka Honey for antimicrobial effectiveness.
Saw Palmetto Honey is a light to deep amber in color. It is full-bodied, citrusy, smoky, with woody overtones. You might even taste a little caramel in there. Its boldness and complexity make it a great complement to cooked or cured meats and salty, hard cheeses. Most importantly, it's the perfect sweetener for the South's signature drink, Sweet Tea.
