Saw Palmetto honey is a gourmet honey that is seldom tasted outside the borders of Florida. With an amber color and smokey and salty after tones this honey is great paired with aged cow’s milk cheeses, or used in dressings. We especially love it drizzled over a blue like Gorgonzola for a simple and elegant dessert.
One of our favorite honey producers is just a few towns over from our igourmet.com offices. Hannah Perry’s family is fourth generation beekeepers, with Hannah’s great-great grandfather starting the tradition by keeping bee hives in the 1800’s. The Perry’s family farm is known as Perry Apiaries and Hannah launched her brand, The Beekeeper’s Daughter, when she saw a local demand for raw honey. Today Perry Apiaries has 3000 hives, which they move from Pennsylvania to Florida to keep the bees busy all winter. All the honey produced by Beekeeper’s Daughter is always raw and unfiltered so it still contains all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and antioxidants naturally found in the hive.
- No honey should be fed to infants 12 months or younger.
