Tupelo honey is one of the rarest honeys in the world (it is harvested only a few days in April...and that is all for the year). Made from the Tupelo tree  which grows only on remote southeastern rivers.

---Never crystallizes.
---Tupelo's flavors are a series of distinct impressions - melon, crème brulée, butter & dried pear. Also described as having a hint of wet stones and the barest hint of Southern Moss (a herbaceous note under all the other tastes).

Recipes using Tupelo honey:
---Honey-Roasted Root Vegetables."If you can't find tupelo honey, substitute another medium-color, floral variety, such as dandelion, loosestrife, or orange blossom."
---Chocolate Tupelo Honey Cake
---Tupelo Honey Butternut Squash Soup

Black Sage honey is a rare honey that is made 4 out of every 10 years.
