Ames Single Source Honey Sampler
Each hive of bees produces honey that's unique-flavored by the plants and trees growing and blooming nearby. Unlike most grocery-store honey, which is blended and filtered to create a generic taste, Ames' single-source honeys celebrate the unique characteristics of geography, letting you experience terroir in a whole new way. Founded in 1995, with two beehives in a small apple orchard, Ames now maintains more than 450 hives in Minnesota. Honey is harvested by hand from individual hives and bottled raw to retain all its healthful properties along with the unique flavor profile of each source. Our sampler includes five 2-oz. jars, each labeled with information about the floral sources that create the flavor. Because the available honey (and what's blooming around the hives) will change from season to season, the sampler will include a different mix each time. Possibilities include light, mild Sweet Clover; rich, full-flavored Fall Wildflower; Alfalfa, with its notes of almond and vanilla; spicy Dandelion, with hints of clove; and earthy, dark amber Buckwheat.
