Bethesda-based Bee America introduced three new honey blends earlier this year. These blends are based on original honey that sustained Americans as they explored and settled in the United States. Prairie Honey is the second honey blend in this series.
Prairie honey reflects the endless sea of grassland that was so impressive to the early settlers. Homesteaders valued honey bees as pollinators for their crops as well as for sweetening foods and providing beeswax for candles. Prairie honey reflects the open fields and spacious skies of the homeland with airy lightness and flavors of straw. This is the honey blend that is universal.
Homesteaders valued honey bees as pollinators for their crops. And they appreciated the sweetening properties for adding taste and flavor to their foods. Prairie honey is the perfect accompaniment to favorite foods and blends deliciously in recipes. Besides enjoying honey with a cup of tea, the golden liquid is perfect for baking, cooking and even homeopathic recipes. Honey butter is often appreciated on the tables at many restaurants and is perfect in many types of soups, including bisques. In fact, honey increases the complexity of soups and can neutralize the potential bitterness of root vegetables.
While honey bees clearly aided the settling of this country by Europeans, humans in turn provided assistance to the honey bee. Humans provided shelter initially in the forms of skeps and later in movable comb hives. Additionally, they supplied pollen and nectar sources by planting large areas of plants that were attractive to bees. Humans also aided bees in traversing the physical barriers that would have otherwise been insurmountable to them like the vast prairie and imposing mountain ranges. It took over 200 years from honey bees to travel across the continent and reach the west coast.
The American Heritage Collection blends of honey are available as single bottles and jars or as gift boxes for personal or corporate gift giving.
