With a flavor like candy, Yellow Star Thistle Honey comes from a vibrant wildflower growing throughout Northern California.
Not so long ago, the small yellow, fuzzy flowers dotted roadsides and fields, familiar to all who drove through the countryside.
Beekeepers who understand how light, sweet and delicate the honey of the Yellow Star Thistle is, vie for hive locations in densely flowered areas.

Pure honey, like ours, may crystallize in time. Many honey connoisseurs select this creamy form because it is so easy to spread. Crystallized honey may be returned to a liquid state by placing the jar in hot (not boiling!) water. Honey can also be microwaved carefully at medium heat until liquid.
