This classic raw honey comes from hives that have been situated in a citrus grove. The perfume of orange flowers blooms on the finish of this mild and tropical honey, which is excellent in tea or on pancakes. Like all our raw honeys, Florida Orange Blossom has been as minimally filtered as possible and is never heated above the natural temperature of a hive to ensure all the beneficial qualities of the raw honey remain intact.


What is Florida Orange Blossom Honey?

Florida Orange Blossom Honey is a mild, fragrant raw honey that comes from hives placed in the middle of Florida's citrus groves. In the early spring as the orange flowers bloom, bees feed on the nectar, producing an exquisite honey that captures the essence of the orange blossoms. Coming out of the winter, this important food source for the bees is critical to the orange groves, which rely on the bees for their pollination.

Where Does it Come From?

We've partnered with the Winter Family, who also produce our Beeker's Cut Honey to bring you this delightful Florida Honey. Before the harsh New York winter sets in, the Winter Family moves their bee colonies south to Florida to keep their bees healthy and happy, and to prepare for the pollination of the orange groves. Pollination services are the main reason the Winter Family and other beekeepers relocate their bees to warmer climates in the winter and spring. No pollination would mean no orange crop. The delightful Orange Blossom Honey - that's just an added bonus.

How To Use Florida Orange Blossom Honey

Florida Orange Blossom Honey is a great replacement for any recipe that calls for refined sugar. The orange essence makes it a great choice for tea, dressings, almond Tart, HOney Tea Cake and more
What Does Raw Honey Mean?

Raw honey means this honey is as close as you get to eating it straight from the hive. It has been minimally filtered and slightly heated (never at a temperature higher than would naturally occur in the hive) so we can safely seal it in a jar, but all the medicinal qualities and beneficial enzymes are all still intact. If you look closely, you'll be able to see some of the original pollen and propolis still present in the honey, which are what help make honey the superfood that it is. Due to its raw nature, this honey does have the tendency to crystallize.

Honey Tea Cake

This is a lovely tea cake that is literally made with tea which adds a nice herbal note. It is not too sweet, which makes it perfect for breakfast or afternoon tea (or coffee?). I put Runamok’s Lemon Verbena and Orange Blossom in the recipe but you can use any of our sweet honeys. The cake will get a light coat immediately when it comes out of the oven, but an extra drizzle when serving is also a good idea. 

We posted this recipe in time to celebrate Rosh Hashanah but is good any time of year.


Honey Cake

 1 ¼ cup flour

2/3 cup sugar

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¼ tsp salt

1 tsp ground cinnamon

¼ tsp ground nutmeg

 ½ cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

⅓ cup Runamok Orange Blossom Honey

1 tsp vanilla

½ cup hot, black tea

 1 – 2 Tbsp Extra honey for drizzling 

 Prepare a bread loaf pan by lining it with parchment and then giving a quick spray of cooking oil on the parchment. Preheat oven to 350.

 In a medium-sized bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients and whisk to blend.

 In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, eggs, honey, and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Add the hot tea and blend. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for about 50 minutes or until a fork comes out clean. Remove the pan from the oven and drizzle extra honey over the top while it is still warm.
