Buckwheat Honey

The Flowers

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, the white flowers dance with bees!

The Flavour

Dark amber to deep mahogany, buckwheat honey is earthy, with notes of malt, chocolate and black cherries.  

Pairings

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.
