This rare honey was harvested from the first bloom in the Woolsey Fire burn area, which stretches fromZuma Beach to Mulholland Hwy. It is derived from a purple flowering phacelia that only blooms following a major chaparral fire. This flower blanketed the hills during the early spring months of 2019. It has a tendency to crystallize and offers a mildly fruity taste.
Eli's Bees honey is harvested from the microclimate zones and diverse ecosystems throughout the Santa Monica Mountains. As each one of Eli's Bees honey varieties are harvested from one location at one particular time of year, our honey embodies the natural complexity of Southern California floral landscape.
Eli's Bees honey is not filtered or pasteurized; each honey has its own unique textures, colors, and taste profiles. Each run retains small amounts of pollens, plant enzymes, and the natural complex sugars found in the flowers.
Each jar is labeled with a location and harvest date identifier.
NOTE: This product is raw and at times will include pollen, bees wax, or bee parts. Crystallization of honey is normal. If you wish to return solidified honey to a liquid state - place in water bath (@90F) for 1 hour. DO NOT HEAT ABOVE 104F.
