Buckwheat Honey is made in Ohio, Minnesota, Wisconsin, New York, and Pennsylvania. It is often known as “black” honey because it looks black unless the light is shining through it. It has a pleasant hay-like, earthy smell, and an unforgettable malty, rich, molasses flavor which is not over-sweet. Buckwheat is tasty on toast, but its strong and spicy flavor makes it perfect for marinades. Buckwheat honey is pungent in flavor with molasses and malty tones and a lingering aftertaste. As a general rule, darker honeys tend to be higher in antioxidant compounds than lighter ones. Because of this characteristic, darker honeys also tend to be higher in mineral content on average, as compared to lighter honeys. 16 oz plastic jar.
