With Valentine’s Day this Friday, our hearts are all abuzz with ideas of how to surprise our loved one with something special. The sweeter the better, we say! In fact, what is sweeter than Texas honey? Texas wildflowers are good for much more than just looking pretty. In fact, they are an excellent source for our bees to make delicious honey. How? It’s a great question. Animal Planet educates us by reminding us of what we learned in grade school!
“A honeybee starts the honey making process by visiting a flower and gathering some of its nectar… To make honey, two things happen: Enzymes that bees produce turn the sucrose (a disaccharide) into glucose and fructose (monosaccharides)… Most of the moisture has to be evaporated, leaving only about 18-percent water in honey…”
Learning about how bees make honey is interesting, but tasting it is oh so much better for us! Send some Texas Honey to your honey this Valentine’s Day.
We are proud of our Texas Bees using our wildflowers to make delicious honey! Texas wildflowers from the Hill Country near the beautiful Llano River are used by productive, intelligent Texas bees to produce this fine product. It’s sure to please.
While we’re on the topic of sweet, our jams and jellies are the perfect complement to our Texas Wildflower Honey on the breakfast table (alongside warm, fresh bread). Whether you have a hankerin’ for Country Blackberry, Country Strawberry, Raspberry Habanero, Cranberry Habanero, or Jalapeño Peach (yep! we said Jalapeño!) we’ve got it for you.
Add a little kick to your ordinary bread spreads and add our jams, jellies and honey to your tabletop! Send some honey to your honey or something sweet to your sweetie! Either way, your Valentine is sure to feel loved!
