The honey straws are 6.5" long.
Fireweed Honey Sticks (also know as honey stix or honey straws) are 100% natural, Grade A fireweed honey, packed in straws. To open them, just bite or pinch the heat seal at one end, and then just squeeze the honey into your mouth.
Fireweed honey sticks are certified Kosher. Kosher certification is by the Orthodox Union - Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregation of America, New York.
A perennial plant that blooms in two-year cycles, fireweed springs up in forests ravaged by wildfires; this is how the plant came to be named. The purplish-red flowers can grow to be 6-feet tall and continue to grow in the blackened soil until crowded out by new growth from other plants.
Fireweed flowers only last for a week and will only appear when the humidity is less that 50 percent. So prized is fireweed honey, beekeepers will relocate their hives to be near a patch of fireweed blooms. Because the flower cannot be cultivated, very limited amounts of fireweed honey can be made. Fireweed honey has a light, delicate smell and a fine, spreadable crystalline texture that reminds me of champagne bubbles. The flavor is like a sweet summer pear: light, luscious, mouthwatering."
