|Many consider Tupelo to be the Champagne of honey. Even Van Morrison sang of its amazing and sweet virtues in his tune stating that his women “is as sweet as Tupelo Honey”. One taste and you’ll understand. Listen below. And more info below the song.|
Unfortunately, the bee hives along the Ogeechee River this year were wiped out by flooding. We will be out of Tupelo honey until 2021, except for what’s currently in stock.
The bees have been busy and Salt Table’s Tupelo Honey is delicious and sweet. The light color and smooth texture makes it almost buttery on the tongue.
Only a few miles from the Salt Table production facility are the remains of the old Ogeechee Canal system. A beekeeper in that area harvests this very fine honey for the Salt Table Brand and we bottle it right here in our own facility in the Savannah area.
Tupelo Honey is only available once a year when the Tupelo Trees are blossom for a few weeks in the Spring. The Salt Table’s Tupelo honey comes from private hives right outside of Savannah along the Savannah and Ogeechee Rivers! When the source of the Tupelo honey has ended, the same bees continue to make wildflower honey for the rest of the season.
It is the only honey that doesn’t crystallize. A true Southern favorite!
Large Jars with dippers are currently out of stock.
