Little Rock, AR (PRWEB) June 10, 2013
Apple Blossom Honey is back in stock and available in 1lb glass jars for $10.00 each at the Mohawk Valley Trading Company. This is raw honey; it has not been heated, filtered, blended or processed and all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, minerals and aromatics are in the same condition as they were in the hive.
The Apple Blossom is the state flower of Arkansas.
“Our Apple Blossom Honey is derived primarily from the nectar of Fuji, Wolf River, Crispen, Sweet Sixteen, Pound Sweet, Granny Smith, Winesap, Fortune, Cortland, Empire, Ginger Gold, Macoun, Spigold, Honeycrisp, Jonagold, Golden Delicous, Acey Mac, and other apple blossoms,” said Mary Ross of the Mohawk Valley Trading Company where they specialize in raw varietal honey. Varietal honey is made primarily from the nectar of a particular type of blossom or flower. To capture the unique character and flavor of the blossom or flower, beekeepers must study botanical bloom and flowering patterns when planning hive placement.
“From about the end of April thru May, we set up apiaries in apple orchards on both slopes and the surrounding area of the Southern Kuyahoora (West Canada) Valley & Central Mohawk Valley regions of Upstate New York.” Ross continued, “One of them in particular is a little known boutique apple orchard where the owner, in addition to growing a wide variety of officially recognized apples, has developed a few species of apples that exist nowhere else, except in his orchard. It is this wide variety of apple blossoms that gives our apple blossom honey its unique and extraordinary flavor.”
Honey has been used by humans since ancient times for its health benefits and as a sweetener and flavoring for many foods and beverages, with tea being the most popular
