There is nothing like Pure Michigan Honey

product_page
The delectable, delightful taste of pure Michigan Honey is enough to tempt the taste buds of most residents of the Wolverine State. With the variety of clovers and wildflowers that grow abudantly throughout Michigan, the bees produce a honey that is very palatable.

The first nectars that the bees bring to the hives come from the fruit and the dandelions and are used to maintain the hive. It isn’t until the clover blooms that the bees start packing in a surplus honey. Various clovers and the wild flowers from then on go to supplying the beekeeper with his honey.

The first honeys are usually light in color and have a very mild flavor. The fall honeys have an amber glow and have a strong flavor. Some people prefer the fall honey as it helps them with their allergy problems. When consuming honey for allergy reasons, it is best to purchase honey from a local beekeeper.

Honey is the only food on the planet that will not spoil or rot. Keep honey in a closed container at room temperature and in a dry place. Do not refrigerate, as this hastens granulation. Natural honey will do what some call turning to sugar. In reality honey is always honey. However, when left in a cool dark place for a long time it will do what I rather call “crystallizing” When this happens I loosen the lid, boil some water, and sit the honey container in the hot water, turn off the heat and let it liquefy. It is then as good as it ever was. Never boil honey or put it in a microwave. To do so will kill and destroy the beneficial enzymes in the honey.  Do not add water to honey, it will ferment if the moisture content is above 18%
