Peterson's Farm Honey
Honey-Caramelized Bananas and Oranges Servings per Recipe: 2 (NatŐl Honey Board)Wouldn't this quick and easy dessert go great with some vanilla ice cream or on top of a slice of pound cake
Statice and lavender are in our Spring and Summer honey.
We have lots of Borage on the farm and the bees really love it! It makes great honey, too! Here in Northern California Borage blooms almost all year.
Honey Carrot Soup
Honey Echinacea Soother
4 whole cloves
Place cloves, cinnamon and tea bag in a mug. Fill 3/4 full with boiling water and let steep for 5 minutes. Remove cloves, cinnamon stick and tea bag; stir in honey and lemon juice. Makes 1 serving.
If you have a rotten cold (What other kind of cold is there?) and want to sleep better, add 2 Tbsp. whiskey or brandy to each mug. Personally, I have never measured the whiskey nor brandy, just poured some in.
Not all honey is equal in flavor, sweetness or aroma.
It all depends on where the bees gathered their nectar.
Our wild flower honey is a light flavored, medium amber hue.
Our honey was awarded two ribbons at the 2009 Harvest Fair.
To the best of our
honey is a combination of some of the following nectars:
wild mustard, clover, lavender, stork's beak, wild radish, borage, pumpkin blossoms,
roses, statice,pennyroyal, mint, lemon verbena, black locust, catalpa, and sunflowers.
What they forage on depends, of course, on what is blooming.
The honey is sold here at the farm. We are looking forward to a good 2017 honey crop. The bees will be out on the wild mustard, wild radish, dandelions,borage, blackberries and other flowers. Most of our honey is a medium color with a mild, pleasant taste. The spring honey should be available in May or June depending on the weather.
All our honey is raw honey that has been extracted right here on the farm and carefully strained through a double layered sieve before bottling.
It is worth the trip, believe us!
Bees fly when the temperature is generally above 55ˇ, it is not raining and it is not too windy.
