Branches Citrus Blossom is gathered from California's Central Valley where citrus trees grow in abundance - this spring's crop was the best in years. Perfect weather with lots of rain and cool conditions produced an exquisite honey that is pale in color with an aroma of an orange tree in bloom. Its taste is sweet and seductive and will bring back memories of our youth where we sucked out the nectar of blooming flowers making our mouths water! Enjoy on morning toast, over granola or plain yogurt. Use it in baking with apples and pears, or winter squash.
Bees produce honey from the nectar of blooming plants, but the nectar produced by one flower will be different than that of another flower. KATZ's mission is to seek out distinctive California flora that yield mono-floral honeys with the qualities in aroma, taste, texture and color reflective of their particular species of flower. We currently collect four mono-floral varieties found in the rich and diverse terrain of California: Raspberry Flower, Citrus Blossom, Black Button Sage, Wild Blackberry Flower, and we also collect a Spring Range Wildflower Honey from the lower Sierra foothills.
All of our Branches honeys are gathered directly from hives and bottled un-pasteurized, thus maintaining the multitude of health benefits of honey that are often lost in overly processed commercial honey, such as overheating to eliminate crystallization and make it easier to package.
All Branches Honeys are certified Kosher.
