Product Description

Raw Star Thistle honey in a Pint and Half container. 

This is 36 oz. nt. wt. of honey.

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 plants - comes in purple, 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.

Knotweed Honey is good
I double checked and yes this is the pretty purple flower that grows along roadside, no thorns at all, that they also call Purple Knotweed, its a wild relative of Batchelor Buttons, the old fashioned garden flower that comes in blue, pink and white, that they still sell in garden catalogs. It has many species and all can be used for a very nice tasting mild honey when flowers are more rare in late summer.I had a friend who was trying to pull it up and get rid of it as our state says to do and she set the pile of plants off to one side and there were still bees trying to get to the flowers even then, so she decided it wasn't so bad after all and will leave it be. The wild bees need to eat too. And we also benefit from it from our tame bees.

Yum!
This is some of the best honey ever! Intensely fragrant and flavorful, I made it into some of the best mead I've ever made, or even tasted. Will definitely be ordering more.

One of the Best Varieties
This honey is as close as you can get to Sardegna's famous thistle honey here in America. It is very sweet, delicate, and creamy. It has a very slight cooling sensation kind of like mint. It's a good all around honey as its flavor isn't overpowering.
