It is officially tupelo season! Tupelo flowers have an extremely short blooming season, from April to May. Because tupelo trees only grow in the swamps of Florida and Georgia, beekeepers must place their hives on river boats and travel the rivers for this sweet nectar.
Tupelo honey is often called the “Champagne of Honeys” due to its delicate flavor and the fact that it rarely, if ever, crystallizes. This extra light amber colored honey has pleasant spicy and fruit-filled aroma notes. Its taste is warm with flavor notes of cinnamon, butterscotch, nutmeg, floral jasmine and fruit pears. Use this honey in your next beverage?
