Clover honey is what most people think of as being typical honey flavor and color. It is most often your everyday table honey, thus widely used. Clover is a highly nectar-producing plant and bees love it. White, Alsike, and Crimson clover plants are some of the most important species for honey production. Depending on location and source, Clover honey varies in color from water white to amber and has a pleasant, mild, and delicate flavor.
The Sourwood tree gets its name from its sour-tasting leaves, but the honey is entirely different. In mid-summer, the North American Sourwood tree is covered with showy clusters of small, white flowers. These blossoms look a lot like the Lily of the valley flower and are highly fragrant, thus attracting honeybees. This all-natural, raw, and unfiltered Sourwood honey from the Eastern Tennessee mountains is buttery sweet and generally light amber in color.
Wildflower honey is also known as "multifloral," "polyfloral," or "mixed floral" honey. It is used to describe honey derived from the nectar of numerous and varied flower blossoms. Its color can vary from very light to a dark amber. Its flavor ranges from floral and fruity to tangy and rich, depending on the season and the mix of different wildflowers used to harvest the honey.
Caution: Do not feed honey to infants under one year of age.
