This little bee would make the perfect gift for someone sweet or decorate an elegant tea tray or table top.
The honey contained in the jar is extra special, too. It is harvested by hand from kiawe forests on the remote Hawaiian island of Molokai. The colonies that produced this honey were hand gathered from the wild on this beautiful island to preserve the integrity of the apiary. The hives are taken from the wild and transported to kiawe forests. Here the bees produce the highly prized sweet kiawe honey that has been sought after for years by locals and tourists alike. One of the special properties of kiawe honey is its rapid crystalization. This honey begins crystalizing shortly after its ready to harvest while still in the hive, so it is nearly solid, softening with stirring. We recommend you don't heat it, just stir it.
Once the largest producer of honey, Molokai went for decades with no commercial production of honey. It is our desire at Molokai Meli to bring Molokai and its world-renown kiawe honey back to the forefront as well as provide jobs for local residents who have been displaced by the loss of traditional work on the island.
As we say in Hawaii "Mahalo Nui Loa" or thank you very much for your support of our project--our island community--our people.
