Honey: Marsh Flower and other rare varieties

Low Country Jon | Apr 22, 2007 02:42 PM

The past year or so I've been sampling every local honey I can get my hands on. My latest discovery: marsh flower honey. It's very dark, floral, rich, and winey. I don't always love really floral honeys, but I make an exception for this one.

I find myself really leaning towards the dark honeys lately. The best I had, besides the marsh flower, very nearly resembled molasses or cane syrup in flavor. Unfortunately, the beekeeper didn't label what type of honey it was. Any ideas? I was thinking maybe buckwheat, but I always hear people say buckwheat honey is very strong tasting. This honey was rich and complex, but I wouldn't say it was strong.

So, other honey-lovers, what's your current favorite?
