Capping The Honey

A comb of capped honey is a beautiful thing! The various colors – and flavors of honey made from various Whidbey grown nectar sources produces a wonderful rainbow of honey colored hues. From perfectly clear to almost black.

Around here, honey from blackberry nectar is the most predominant. Other times the honey is a mixture of nectar from many different flowers. Clover, fireweed, dandelions, blueberries, maple, thistles, mints. Even cabbage, mustard and dill can be nectar sources.

The different sources and the strength of the blooms each year make honey different every year. Never the same but uniquely Whidbey Island honey!
