Nature's Goodness

Good Day Apron Goddesses! Suzi here. We received a four pack sampler of honey from Mohawk Valley Trading Co. I have a bit of a sweet tooth. Love the just about anything that involves sugar! So what better way to enjoy it than in it's rawest and most natural form?

Here are the jars of raw honey, from Mohawk Valley Trading Co. The package contained orange blossom, apple blossom, Adirondack wildflower, and Maine wild blueberry blossom honeys. The flavor's of these honeys are hinted with the flower from which the bees gathered nectar and pollen.

This honey is: Pure, Unpasteurized,Unfiltered, Unprocessed, Unheated, Unblended, Gourmet Wildflower Honey.

This morning I decided to have it on my butter milk hotcakes. I typically dress hotcakes in Agave Nectar, but decided to try out the Raw Orange Blossom Honey. It tasted quite good, complemented the other flavors in the hotcakes. I could taste a hint of the orange trees the bees raided their pollen from. The taste of this one resembles the taste of honey purchased in the grocery stores.

I figured if the Orange Blossom tasted that good then the Apple Blossom must taste just as good. I did what any person who loves honey does....I grabbed a spoon and dipped it right in. The Apple Blossom Honey has a drier taste to it, but I could taste a bit of the apples it was derived from. I am imagining what I might enjoy it with....a cup of tea, an English muffin, cornbread, added to salad dressing and the list goes on. I am quite satisfied with both jars of honey.

Julia prefers to use this delicious honey on her wheat toast while working on the blog in the morning. As you can see by the lack of honey in the jar, this Main wild blueberry blossom honey is very popular in her house. Julia's kids love this stuff too.

These honeys are very delicately flavored and are really great used full strength to accent the foods you eat. We highly recommend the Mohawk Valley Trading Co. honey products as they are very high quality and are of course, made in the USA!!

I had a chance to sample this honey as well. So good! I think it's my most favorite ever! I did like the Maine Blueberry so much, too. Another favorite of mine was the Orange Blossom and I also loved the Summer honey. I haven't seen the Apple Blossom. Yum!
