Honey is as diverse as wine in its flavor and color and should be used in a similar manner, as a way to complement whatever it is being paired with. Those who drink coffee usually prefer a darker honey than a tea drinker.

Honey makes baked goods taste better and it keeps them moister than sugar, so they taste better longer. A light honey is more suited to an Angel Cake, and a dark honey is much better in oatmeal cookies and brownies.

Neighborhood Nectar comes from colonies which established their homes in the walls of houses, garages, and sheds around Santa Clara valley. Some comes from old trees which have had to be removed because tree cutters prefer not to deal with thousands of angry women (worker bees are female).

In an age when there is so much concern about chemicals in the food supply, families can be assured that this honey came from bees which have never been managed, were surviving on their own, and building their nests in the same way they have done for millions of years.

Since all removals are done without smoke, there is no way the honey flavor can be affected.

The combs removed from the nest are not spun out in an extractor, they are crushed and the honey drained through a strainer
