Oregon/Washington Buckwheat Honey

Buckwheat honey is known for its deep black color and robust flavor. Dark honeys are known to have higher antioxidants and richer mineral content. If you’re a health-nut, this is the honey for you. Don’t let the dainty white buckwheat blossoms fool you, this honey packs a flavor punch. With a little help from the bees, the thick black nectar is turned into buckwheat honey which has the distinct aroma of molasses, and a hint of barn yard. Enjoy the rich flavors of molasses and malty goodness in this dark delicacy.

Mix buckwheat honey with a little lemon for a home brewed cough syrup or try your hand at a traditional mead. Mead makers rave of this eastern variety of buckwheat and often mix it with other lighter, sweeter honeys like blackberry honey for a unique flavor profile. Also try buckwheat pancakes, home-made BBQ sauce, or meat marinades with buckwheat honey!

Note: Our Buckwheat Honey is pure, raw, and unadulterated, and may crystalize as a result. This is to be expected of natural honey and does not impact the usability of the product.

    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.
