As flowering orange groves perfume the air with a pleasant, citrus aroma throughout the Mediterranean climate of California, honeybees gather the nectar that will become GloryBee's Raw California Orange Blossom Honey. As the second largest citrus-producing state in the U.S., California has a deep heritage of cultivating and growing a variety of citrus fruits for over two centuries.
The orange tree yields small white blooms that will give way to incredible golden oranges—a sweet and juicy summertime treat. The small pure white petals create a delicate, star-shaped flower that is not only beautiful but uniquely aromatic. Historically the delightful orange blossom symbolizes many things from good fortune to eternal love. They are used in wedding bouquets and floral arrangements, brewed as fragrant teas, mixed into delicacies, adorn desserts and are widely used in cosmetics and aromatherapy. It is easy to see how we and honeybees share an affinity for the honey of this lovely little flower.
The sweet citrus flavor of oranges is imparted to this honey from the nectar the bees gather. The color of this honey varies from white to light amber. The texture is viscous and smooth, perfect for drizzling over yogurt, using as an ingredient in salad dressings, or any dish that benefits from a sweet citrus accent.
This 100% pure, raw honey is not only regionally sourced from California, but is also sustainable and supports SAVE the BEE®. We're proud to bring you a raw honey that meets European standards for bee pollen content. Because of the unique way our honey is handled, it retains the bee pollen, enzymes, and other micronutrients generally lost during processing. Our raw honey is never heated over 115 degrees F and is only strained, never filtered. A portion of sales from this honey is donated to SAVE the BEE® which helps support honey bee research and the issue of colony collapse disorder (CCD). Certified kosher and gluten-free, GloryBee's Raw California Orange Blossom Honey is honey you can feel good about eating and sharing with your friends and family.
