Savannah Bee Company Black Sage Honey 20oz
Black Sage Honey is very unique and rare. It is light in color with a complex but mild taste. Black Sage, Salvia mellifera, is a wild desert sage that grows in the Sierra Nevada mountains. To produce enough blossoms for honeybees to make a crop of Black Sage Honey, this desert plant must get just the right amount of rain at just the right time of year. Many years can pass before black sage plants experience this delicate balance of rainfall and aridness, which is one reason why Black Sage Honey is so special. Black Sage is a very unique, rare honey harvested only four seasons per decade from regions like the Sierra Nevada Mountains. An extraordinarily mild and delicious honey, Savannah Bee's Black Sage provides a subtle herbaceous flavor ideal for savory recipes or by the spoonful. This rare and exceptional treat is worth the wait!

It's like most anything else, you can make it as simple or difficult as you wish. Many mead makers enjoy constantly pushing themselves and challenging their skills.
