    Default Natural honey with a spicy cinnamon flavor

    I got a jar of honey from my grandpa that is spicy cinnamon flavored. it has nothing added to it( it is just pure honey) . my family agrees that it is the best honey we have ever had. we only have clover honey from our hives so this is a real treat. have you ever tasted honey like this and does anyone know what nectar source honey like this would come from. the honey is from the high desert in central oregon where there is alot of juniper etc.. we have had other honey from him and it did not taste like this.

    Did the honey come in a recycled container?

    Maybe some lady nearby added essential oils to her hot tub?

    Remember the red bees and red 'honey' on NY -they found out the bees from several different beekeepers were feasting at the runoff ranks of the local maraschino cherry factory. The bees themselves turned bright red, the 'honey' that was cured and capped in the combs was red cherry syrup with all kinds of preservatives in it.

    no im sure there was nothing like the marchino cherry deal. they live way out from any towns or anything. im sure the glass jar was clean unless there was some left over applesauce flavor. I dont really think its from applesauce as it is a glass quart jar that knowing her grandma it was really clean.

    I did a trade a few years ago, in which I received some very cinnamon-ny flavored clover honey. It was some of the best honey I ever had.

    Hey, kwest - I can't help on finding that cinnamon honey for you, but if you do, let me know where.
    Also, how is Manhattan these days? The last time I went through there (around 1976) I blinked and missed it. Has it grown?

    it has grown some. it is still a pretty nice small town. one of the nicest towns around because it hasn't changed and grown much since the 70's. However bozeman is way to big for me. I hate to see growth but it is good for business i guess. those of you who did have cinnamon flavored honey what type of are did it come from. was it a dry desert area like where mine came from?

    The cinnamon tasting honey I had came from extreme north North Dakota or in Canada just north of the border. I received it from a beek who keeps on both sides of the line. I don't remembe his name, and I can't find the old posts from the now gone trading forum.

    I actually bought some a few weeks ago from one of our local shops. (I have been out of my honey for months.) Absoultely awesome. Although I can't guarantee the Missouri address is where the honey came from, it was labeled from Missouri.

    If I only knew the source I would figure out a way to put all my hives on it.

    I believe rapeseed also produces a spice tasting honey.

    I had a small section of partially cured honey that has the same taste. It was harvested by me in NE Oklahoma on July 5th. I have no idea what the source is but it tastes great.

    I know I'm a little off topic, but I use to live in Big Sky. I was the resident Deputy Sheriff there. Is the Oasis Steak House still there in Manhattan? There use to be several beekeepers over around Amsterdam in the alfalfa fields. That truly is a beautiful and unique part of the country.

    I am glad to hear of others with cinnamon honey. I had some cut comb I put in jars last year and it too had this unique taste. I did not find this taste in my bottled honey. If it was there, the strength would have been diminished by the blending. Unfortunately, I have no clue what the bees were working. I am in southwest Georgia in the middle of farm country. We have an abundance of red clover, a lot of St. Johns Wart. I sure wish I knew what it was.

    Has anyone had any luck pinpointing this honey? I'd love to try some!
