Moon Shine Trading Company - High Plains Sweet Clover
A delicate and fruity flavor. Not overly sweet, with an element of fruit, floral and tartness.
Aroma – Cinnamon
Color – Light Yellow
Thickness – Very thick and spreadable
Taste – sweet floral flavor with hint of tartness
This is a classic clover honey with aroma of cinnamon in the nose and very sweet floral flavors in the mouth. Very viscous and spreadable making it great honey for peanut butter and honey sandwich.
A native to the Mediterranean region, Sweet Clover now grows bountifully throughout the hot and dry, high plains of the Midwestern United States. Honey bees transform the nectar from the white and yellow flowers into a supremely unique, light honey. It’s possible for one strong bee colony to make up to 200 pounds of Sweet Clover honey in just one year.
Upon opening the jar, an intense cinnamon aroma announces our High Plains Sweet Clover honey. Honey connoisseurs recognize this distinctive aroma and flavor immediately. The cinnamon is joined with caramel and nutmeg, followed by a lingering spicy finish on the palate. It is very distinct from the clover honey you probably grew up with.
