Hawaiian Lehua Honey promotes an image of tropical breezes, lush countryside, beautiful flowers, and stormy volcanoes. It is said in Hawaiian lore, that you approach the Volcano Kilauea with both respect and an offering for the fire goddess, Pele.
The traditional tribute is a branch from the Ohia tree with its lovely, fluffy red blossom, the Lehua. You must leave the branch at the volcano to pacify Pele’s fiery temperament.
This same blossom, with the strength to quell volcanoes, also creates this luxurious, tropical honey; Hawaiian Lehua! Lehua Honey, totally unique in flavor, color and aroma, crystallizes readily into a white, creamy consistency perfect for spreading.

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.
