Heavy-bodied and dark,
Buckwheat Honey is soothing to the soul
Buckwheat is an ancient crop, grown for its grain. In our region, it is often also planted by organic farmers to enrich the soil. When a buckwheat field blooms in late summer, its white fluffy flowers dance with pollinators - bumblebees, butterflies, and honeybees.
Dark amber to deep mahogany, buckwheat honey is characteristically earthy, with notes of malt, chocolate and black cherries.
Buckwheat honey pairs well with hardy Stilton cheese. To soothe an evening chill, stir a spoonful of buckwheat honey into a mug of steeped water with lemon, with a splash of dark rum. Buckwheat honey is particularly great for sore throat and cough.
