saw palmetto honeySaw palmetto honey is a bi-product from the production of saw palmetto berries that is coveted for its extract containing from 85% to 98% fatty acids and sterols and used as an herbal support for prostate enlargement worldwide. The saw palmetto plant, (Serenoa repens), is a miniature palm with a lazy trunk and stems that sport an array of opposing saw teeth from the truck to the fronds (leaves). The small palm trunk may be 3 or 4 feet long and laying flat on the ground with the palm head turned upright and the palm fronds rising four to five feet in the air.

The saw palmetto produces fruit once a year, about the size the size of an olive and also has a pit (seed) inside. The saw palmetto fruit are handpicked, dried into a powder, then converted into a liquid for encapsulation. The honey bee starts this process by pollinating the saw palmetto blossom. Saw palmetto honey is produced, from the miniature palm, profusely during the bloom season. This saw palmetto honey is a gourmet honey that is seldom tasted outside the borders of Florida. Real estate development, drainage, fires and encroachment of man has begun to shrink the borders of this one time rampant growing plant that greeted Ponce de Leon hundreds of years ago.

Native Florida Crackers smiled at the tourist for years as they sold them orange blossom honey and kept the true jewel, saw palmetto honey for themselves. This gourmet delight is on the “threatened” list and may one day soon be a fond memory when the last supply of Florida indigenous saw palmettos have been bulldozered into a pile and burned. The last gasp of hope for saw palmetto honey is the saw palmetto berry which hand pickers are paid over $5.00 a pound and land owners now guard their supply of berries with guard dogs and shotguns.

Saw palmetto honey is one of the honey greats that will change your mind about buying blended honey from the store shelf. With the international honeybee plight, saw palmetto honey will be in short supply. Support your local beekeeper, his bees will pollinate up to 40% of the food you will eat next year! We need more bees, more beekeepers to preserve our food source! Buy palmetto honey.

Palmetto Honey from Florida

Wednesday, July 02nd, 2008 3:48pm

Palmetto Honey has long been preferred by native Floridians. This unique honey has seldom been shipped to the rest of the country because it is produced in small quantities. An exquisite gourmet honey that must be tried is Palmetto Honey. Setting Palmetto Honey apart is its deep Amber color and its full bodied flavor. Citrusy, smoky, with woody overtones, this Palmetto Honey makes a great compliment to cooked or cured meats such as Ham, Proscuitto, Turkey and Sausage. Use Palmetto Honey as a glaze when baking. Hard cheeses such as Asiago go well with Palmetto Honey.

Serve fresh citrus with Palmetto Honey for breakfast. Another treat is making a sharp black tea with Palmetto Honey. Make fresh lemonade using Palmetto Honey. This distinctive taste will have guests asking for your secret recipe.

Palmetto Honey is made from an indigenous palm plant found in a belt from North Carolina to Florida. The palmetto flourishes along the Atlantic coast, and in southern Florida. As a palm, the Palmetto can grow up to 60 feet. The saw palmetto looks like miniature palms whose trunks grow along the ground, and then turn their crown to the sun its last 4 to 6 feet. They grow in huge clusters. Palmetto Honey will become a rarity very soon, as it takes almost 100 years for these plants and trees to grow quantities large enough to be used to produce Palmetto Honey. Heavy development has destroyed large quantities of this natural vegetation.

Saw Palmetto Honey almost has an orangish taste. This honey is great for beer and mead recipes. Palmetto Honey, as other honeys, range from light to dark amber color, depending upon its source. The Palmetto Honey from the tree is lighter in color and thinner in consistency. Saw Palmetto Honey ranges from medium to dark in its color. Both honeys have a citrusy flavoring that is full-bodied.

This Palmetto Honey makes a wonderful gourmet honey gift for those food connoisseurs who have never tasted such nectar from the south.
