Contrary to its name, Sourwood Honey is anything but sour. This honey comes from the sourwood trees in the Appalachian Mountains in Georgia. Sourwood is a tree that grows 40 to 60 feet and blooms from late June through July. It is considered to be one of the best honeys available and often carries a high price due to its supply and demand. Sourwood honey has a sweet pleasant caramel like flavor. Our Sourwood Honey is unfiltered, raw, and in its all natural state as when it was extracted. Sourwood honey is extra light amber in color with a distinctive rich and aromatic flavor.
