Chamiso HoneyMADE BY GRAMPA'S GOURMET HONEY IN ALAMOSA, COLORADO
This stunning golden honey was harvested in the fall of 2009 from bees roaming Southern Colorado's San Luis Valley and collecting nectar and pollen from chamiso brush (aka Rabbit Brush), a hardy evergreen plant particular to the dry, tough climate of the American Southwest. It's richly sweet with a robust, nutty flavor.
According to Grampa's story, Native Americans used chamiso in medicinal teas to alleviate dizziness and maintain focus. (So if we eat a lot of this honey we'll get way more work done, right?).
