Growing up on the east coast, having what I believed at the time to be real maple syrup- this opportunity allowed me to discover the “true taste” of 100% pure maple syrup with no additives.
Arriving in a glass bottle,Grade A Dark, Robust Maple Syrup is primarily made from sugar maple sap- this is preferred for maple syrup production because it has an average sugar content of 2%. note: the sap from other maple species is usually lower in sugar content, and about 2X as much is needed to produce the same amount of finished syrup). Grade B, is wonderful for baking and for those who love a maple flavor. ONLY 10% of syrups produced are labeled “Grade B.”
Our thoughts: Sweet and delicious. You will find you may require less of the syrup depending on what you are eating! I shared with my extended family and the children, were quite surprised by the sweetness. The flavor is very rich, unlike commercial syrups you may be used to.
If you are planning to use honey for its health-benefits, it must be raw honey. Heating honey (pasteurization) destroys the all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, and aromatics.
Raw Tulip Poplar-Black Locust Honey – From about the last week of October (after we harvest the Autumn Wildflower and Buckwheat Honey) thru April some of our hives are trucked to The Delmarva Peninsula to winter over in a milder climate and to get an earlier start in the spring than they would in Upstate NY. Tulip Poplar and Black Locust trees bloom about the same time and this honey is derived form the nectar of their blossoms. Its dark color is due to the high mineral content.
Our thoughts: consistency is almost gritty in texture and thick- this was our favorite! The taste had gentle citrus after-flavor. It has been a favorite for use on breads and tea!
Raw Goldenrod Honey- From mid-late August through October, hives are on both slopes and the surrounding area of the Southern Kuyahoora Valley & Central Mohawk Valley regions of Upstate New York.
Raw goldenrod honey is often used by pollen allergy sufferers to lessen their sensitivity to pollen by eating 1 to 2 tsp. of it each day. The idea is, that by introducing small amounts of pollen into their system by eating raw honey, a tolerance to pollen allergens is built up.
Our thoughts: Mild and thick, this was my sister-n-laws choice to add in to her coffee. a definite, subtle floral-like taste.
Overall we will definitely repurchase! Next, I am looking forward to trying the Raw Orange Blossom or Raw Apple Blossom flavors!
