A jar of honey

The character of any honey depends on the source of the nectar that the bees sip, and on the season; both contribute to color and flavor.

Honey used in baking adds moisture and a haunting yet robust taste.

Our top honey: McClendon’s Select, Peoria, AZ

In the desert of southern Arizona, McClendon’s harvests honey from beehives set among its many citrus trees (the farm’s other business is growing 200 kinds of organic produce) and from the wildflowers in the area.

We like the mild-tasting orange-blossom honey and the desert-blossom honey, which is darker and heartier.
