This beautifully dark honey has a bold flavor and is antioxidant-rich. Its pleasant flavor has notes of chocolate and molasses that linger on the palate after the first scrumptious bite. Made from bees that have harvested from the hearty and nectar-rich flowers of the buckwheat plant, this honey is a perfect sweetener for baked goods that require a deeper flavor.
The flowers of the buckwheat plant are small and yellow, seemingly made for the honey bees to harvest from. The honey is a product of true symbiosis between insect and plant!
Definitely the best I’ve had! Tried a couple of brands prior to being introduced to Astor Apiaries. Bold color, rich flavor without the stigma of ‘sweetness’ usually attached to honey.
I had heard that buckwheat honey was good for diabetics. This is one reason why I purchased from them. Never had it before. Now I am addicted to it. It's not as sweet as the other honeys. It has a good flavor to it. They are a keeper in my books!!
IMHO, the texture and flavor of the buckwheat surpasses other choices. The "tartness" gives a new dimension to honey consumption.
