With a flavor like candy, Yellow Star Thistle Honey comes from a vibrant wildflower growing throughout Northern California. Not so long ago, the small yellow, fuzzy flowers dotted roadsides and fields, familiar to all who drove through the countryside. Beekeepers who understand how light, sweet and delicate the honey of the Yellow Star Thistle is, vie for hive locations in densely flowered areas.
The clean and simple taste won the hearts of the staff at Food and Wine magazine who declare it ‘The Champagne of Honeys!” Saveur magazine names Yellow Star Thistle one of America’s finest honeys. Star Thistle is wonderful to bake with - it’s light flavor never overpowers the subtle flavors of cakes, cookies and so much more.
