Raw Star Thistle Honey in a 5 pound container

Product Description

Raw Star Thistle honey in a 5 pound container. 

Raw honey has not been heated and simply filtered through a large mesh screen. The screen removes larger particles and allows pollen, propolis and beeswax particles to pass through it.

This honey is light gold in color and has a very mild and pleasing floral taste. May be the number 1 sought out honey in the U.S. (yes even more than clover). Takes a while to crystallize and makes a fantastic creamed honey. Comes from the Star Thistle plant which is actually a noxious weed. You've seen star thistle - comes in pruple, yellow, and red varieties and bees absolutely love it!

Star Thistle Honey originated in the Mediterranean from the yellow star thistle plant and migrated to the US in the mid nineteenth century. Considered a noxious weed by many, this star thistle clustered amongst thorns produces yellow star thistle honey, which is relished by honey enthusiasts. Beekeepers in California, Idaho, Michigan, Arizona, Oregon and Washington seek out fields of this knapweed because of the large amounts of star thistle honey that can be produced from this plant. The light amber nectar of the plant is highly desirable by bees and honey producers.

Rich
I was amazed at how rich the flavor of star thistle honey was when I first tried it, and it's come to be one of the flavors I run to when I feel the need for a treat. This honey makes me think the bees were making a creamy lightly spiced frosting.

Mr.
I recently spent 3 days in the Hospital with a inflamed small intestine the Doctors ran a tube down my nose and drained me for 2 days and Nights, they told me there was no Med's they could give me that would speed up recovery just stick to a light diet, mostly liquid I went home and my first meal was toast with your Honey on it .I started to see the inflammation go down very quickly 2 days later I was back to feeling my old self. The antibacterial effect from the Honey worked very well. It is now a daily addition to my Meals

Delish! part 2
If you mix this with cream cheese, you'll never go back! Boy howdy. Never tasted anything so good. It has something of a lemony taste with a buttery after-taste--hard to believe this taste combo comes from this mild and unusual tasting honey. Unbelievable.

consistent quality
I have been buying raw honey from eBeeHoney for years. I love the consistent quality and excellent customer service. Star Thistle has replaced Goldenrod as my new fave.

Tops in a field of favorites
It's hard to believe that one of E Bee's honeys could top the others, but Raw Star Thistle just edged into that position. We enjoy it in green tea; on toast; blended with goat yogurt, ricotta cheese, blueberries or raspberries for dessert; and just off the spoon. It is very easy to use in the tub. Smooth, deep, complex, this is a rich treat. Thank you bees, Glenn and Becky.

STAR THISTLE the best!
We love star thistle honey around here. The mild sweet flavor suits all of us. Be sure to get the wide mouth jar....it really makes using honey that has crystalized a snap! Try this one ... You won't be sorry!

5 Stars for star thistle
Another great product from ebeehoney; I use it with my oatmeal, and corn flakes; its sweeter than standard wildflower honey, and has a distinct taste, which is why I don't use it with my tea.

Star Thistle Fan
I am a big fan of star thistle honey and have had a difficult time finding it. Yours is extremely flavorful (I guess that''s the bees'' doing). Each morning, I use this honey on my oatmeal, it''s the best breakfast around! I also appreciate your fast service!
