Dedicated beekeepers create this honey varietal by housing honey bees near fireweed flowers in the Pacific Northwest. As the bees gather the nectar from these fireweed plants, the honey they create takes on unique qualities.
Bright purple Fireweed flowers, native to the Pacific Northwest, grow after forest fires in the Cascade Mountain range. Pacific Northwest beekeepers raise bees that pollinate fireweed blossoms, then harvest the sweet fireweed honey.
The raw fireweed honey is filtered at 200 microns and heated at low temperatures to remove impurities. This process makes the honey safe to eat while maintaining its nutrients and flavor profile. With over forty years of honey-making experience, Anna’s ensures a gourmet-quality product in every jar.
Enjoy the rich and dark taste of fireweed honey in this 12-ounce bear bottle. Due to the long shelf-life of honey, this jar can be kept in a pantry or kitchen for over a year and still taste fresh. Flip the lid and enjoy the convenience of pouring fireweed honey into recipes, tea, and breakfast foods.
I am a longtime lover of honey and Fireweed is one of my top two favorite varieties. My usual supplier has been out of stock for a very long time and I found Annas online. This is delicious Fireweed - light, crisp and sweet and I love it! It�??s great on fruit and plain yogurt and in tea when you don�??t want the honey flavor to overpower the flavor of the tea. This is lovely honey!
I love honey, and when a friend suggested Fireweed honey, I thought, why not. If you aren't familiar with honey, its a varied in taste as there are snowflake patterns. And I am more of a spring clover type of gal. However my Husband thinks this is the best honey he has ever tasted. I would liken the taste more toward molasses. It definitely has a more full bodied taste. Which is amazing, but not my favorite. If you like a stronger taste....grab this one!
I have been buying Fireweed honey for the past 30+ years and love it. Used to be able to buy it at the Thorp Fruit Stand on my way to Seattle from Spokane.
My father was a beekeeper and this is one of my favorite honeys. In fact, I'm going to have some right now!
