• Lavender & Tanoak Honey (4 oz) – Private Reserve, LIMITED Now available to you! A rare, dark honey from the Bonny Doon Farm some years ago by friend Jim Nelson of beloved Camp Joy in Boulder Creek. The bees collected lavender nectar and tanoak nectar (Notholithocarpus densiflorus). This honey is less sweet and darker than our other honeys, almost black, with a bitter caramel flavor. Rich in antioxidants and minerals, it is a delicacy with cheeses or fruit, drizzed on a roast or on vegies on the grill. Available only in limited quantity, as tanoaks are suffering from disease, Phytophthora ramorum, which has killed more than one million oak and tanoak trees during the last decade. Closest comparison is Rare New Zealand Manuka honey ,,,
Having a party? Honeys are delectable on the cheese tray – add figs to delight the palate, or any fruit of your choice. Dip your cheese into the honey, or drizzle over the cheese and you are transported to Tuscany. Mmmmm.
