Blodgett : Bigleaf Maple

$ 11.00

This honey varietal derived primarily from bigleaf maple (Acer macrophyllum) nectar was harvested in early May from an apiary in Blodgett, OR. Bigleaf maple honey has strong eucalyptus, menthol, licorice, and root beer flavor notes. It is available in 8 oz (BPA-free) plastic squeeze bottles and 22 oz glass jars. The harvest date, apiary location, and primary nectar source(s) are written on the label.

Bigleaf maple (Acer macrophyllum) is a common West Coast maple known for its unmistakably large leaves. It typically blooms in April but can bloom as early as March or as late as May. The trees’ flowers offer ample nectar and pollen for honeybees, but foraging during bloom time can be limited by wet weather or cool temperatures. In 2018, however, conditions were just right to make a huge bigleaf maple honey crop. 

Bigleaf maple honey has a unique menthol and/or eucalyptus flavor and aroma. It is one of our more controversial flavors in that a minority of folks love it, but some people don't care for it at all.

Honey is never heated over natural hive temperatures, and we only filter it minimally, so it may include pollen, small wax particles, and the occasional bee bit. All natural honey will solidify eventually. To liquify, place the jar in a bowl of warm (not boiling) water. Our honeys are never flavored or infused with added ingredients. The varietal names indicate the primary nectar source plants the bees were foraging on at the time of honey production.  

If you intend to buy this honey as a gift, please include a note for the recipient at checkout.
