Star Thistle Honey
Star Thistle Honey is one of our most popular honeys. This harvest has a slight wildflower influence. This honey is made to complement your favorite teas, enhance your favorite recipes and great to eat right out of the jar. Light in color, not too sweet. It tastes like nothing else on this planet.
Star Thistle, blooming mid-summer, grows on the dry hills and along the road-sides of Northern California. It is considered to be a noxious weed. Environmentalists wish to eradicate it because it is invasive, covering 22% of the State of California, and it is a danger to cattle and horses, killing them if they eat too much of it. However, the bees love the nectar from this prickly plant.
