The culinary equivalent of "stopping to smell the flowers". Fortunately, the bees didn't just stop, they got to work and as a result, they brought the metaphor another dimension: we can now bee in the moment through our sense of taste, too!

This sourwood is the best sourwood honey that I've had. I give this honey 4/5 just due to the fact that there are a handful of other honeys that I would generally reach for before I went for this one. The taste is good, but I do not prefer the "sour" because it's more bitter than anything to me. So this one will be a cooking honey for me and I will use others like the tupelo for just tasting honey. Hard to really give it a 4/5 because for sourwood it's a 5/5, but for honey... it's a 4/5. Hope that makes sense.

I love the honey bar at this store and after trying ALL of them, I thought this was by far the best. I was surprised how it stood out when tasting all of the honeys back to back. I have to say, I've never been much of a honey person, and this one converted me. Love it on pancakes, toast, crackers and fruit.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Southern Appalachian bees, for making this exceptional honey for us once again!

It has been a long wait, hasn't it? Last year's crop did not fare well. In fact, Ted called it “the worst crop in memory.” The weather in that region of the United States just plain didn’t cooperate, and Ted was unable to find any Sourwood Honey worth bottling and selling to you good people.

But all that is done and gone, and happy days are here again! Get your waffles, pancakes, tea, coffee and whatever else ready. Sourwood is back!
