You’ve likely heard of Tupelo honey, the South’s most prized single-flower honey, produced in and around the Florida panhandle when tupelo trees burst into bloom each spring. And you might know a little something about Sourwood honey, that deep and spicy nectar of Appalachia. But what about the dark, molasses-like honey gathered from Florida’s black mangrove, avocado, and loquat blossoms? Or the bright and grassy honey gathered from Eastern Shore butterbean plants? Honey is deeply nuanced. Like fine wine or whiskey, it’s layered in flavor, aroma, and history. The editors at G&G sampled varieties bursting with the essence of the South. The result of our sticky taste-test? Five honeys that will leave a taste of sweet Southern sunshine even when summer is long gone.
