Oregon/Washington Buckwheat Honey

Buckwheat blossoms produces very little pollen, but its little white blossoms are heavy with nectar. Our bees love it and turn it into a rich and robust, dark ambrosia we call our Buckwheat Honey.

Buckwheat honey is known for its black color. Dark honeys are known to have higher antioxidants and richer mineral contents. So this is our natural health-nut honey. Buckwheat is not like regular wheat, it is not a cereal or grass, but it is a common crop. It’s dainty-white blossom makes a surprisingly robust flavor. Enjoy the rich flavors of molasses and malted grains of this dark delicacy. Mixed with a little lemon, it makes a wonderful home brewed cough syrup that many believe is much better for you than over the counter remedies. Also try buckwheat pancakes, home-made BBQ sauce, meat marinades, or a traditional mead with buckwheat honey!

    I sampled some a few years ago at the market and knew I’d want more. This dark honey is very reminiscent of molasses, but I would say it has more of an earthy/oat-like flavor from the buckwheat versus a bit more tang or sharp flavor from molasses. As I was warned by the vendor, this is not a honey for one seeking that average daily sweetener use. I like a little honey out of craving, I may test subbing out molasses in my next batch of cookies, and I’d love to someday see how a batch of mead might turn out with these flavor notes, but I just like it in particular teas or a small rich, sweet spoonful.
