Our very own Japanese knotweed honey. Very dark with a pleasant and unique taste.
Japanese Knotweed Honey is a local specialty honey harvested once a year. Select hives are placed during late Summer/early Fall near locations with large amounts of the plant, usually along streams and rivers. The bees produce a unique dark, reddish honey from the tiny white flowers. Knotweed is an invasive species here, but the upside of this plant is that it is a plentiful and nutritious food source for the bees right before they head into Winter. Knotweed is high in the anti-oxidant Resveratrol (just like red wine) so it is good *and* good for you!
