Butter Bean Honey is like a burst of Eastern Shore sunshine. This honey is silky smooth with hints of grass, peach, and the earthy underlay of its source legume. Try it straight in tea or simmered into a simple syrup mixed into your favorite cocktails.
Bright and smooth tasting notes of peach and grass
One of our rarest honey varietals
Our Butter Bean Honey comes from the hives of our beekeeper friend whose bees pollinate butter bean and pumpkin fields in Delaware. Butter beans provide nectar that the bees turn into a light, mild honey. There is a slightly green, sometimes yellow tint to this beautiful and simple not-too-sweet honey. On the first taste, you will notice a mild "grass" note on your tongue. The finish is gently sweet, with notes of fruits. Great for use in herbal iced tea with lemon. Pair it with strong, salty cheese. Use on grilled peaches by sweetening a dollop of ricotta with honey and chopped herbs. Add to your next marinade. Make a simple syrup and pair with Vodka or Gin.
