There is so much focus on bees lately and many hive collapse theories are being presented. So we're very happy to be able to offer these honeys from smaller beekeepers that are doing well and are providing such a great service to all the flowers in their neighborhoods!
Store honey on your kitchen counter or in your pantry.
Storing honey in the refrigerator accelerates crystallization - the natural process by which liquid honey becomes solid. If honey crystallizes, remove lid and place container in warm water. Or, microwave one cup of honey in a microwave-safe container for 2 to 3 minutes or until the crystals dissolve; stir every 30 seconds.
Honey Substitutions :
You can substitute honey for equal amount of sugar in most recipes. In baked goods, substitute honey for up to half of the sugar and make the following adjustments:
- Reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe by ¼ cup for each cup of honey used
- Add ½ tsp baking soda for each cup of honey used
- Reduce the oven temperature by 25°F
We believe that our food is only as good as the ingredients used, which is why we pair our favorite bourbon, Woodford Reserve, with the best honey in the Carolinas, ours. Enjoy the smooth and sweet taste of honey with a hint of bourbon. Some things get better with age and this is one of them.
To answer the age-old question, "Chocolate or Vanilla?" Vanilla, please... but hold the extract! At Cloister Honey, we put beans in our honey, Vanilla Beans that is.

Provence, France is famous for it's rolling fields of lavender where the best, true lavender honey is produced from its nectar. We can't transport our hives to this stunning environment so our North Carolina version uses the second best thing to lavender nectar - the actual flower. Floral .. but not too floral ... open a jar and travel to the south of France.
In perfect harmony lives ginger, lemon, and honey. Ginger brings a slight sweetness mixed with a peppery bite. Lemon provides that juicy burst of acidity and bright citrusy aromas. Honey, of course, adds mellow florals and bold, velvety, sweetness. This lemon-ginger honey is infused with dried lemon, dehydrated ginger root, black tea, and wildflower honey.
It's a matcha made in heaven. Created from stone-ground green tea leaves into a delicate powder, matcha is dissolved in hot water to make tea or used as a flavoring. The traditional Japanese tea ceremony, which the matcha ritual stems from, has mindfulness at its roots. Ichi-go ichi-e ("one time, one meeting") is the idea that every encounter is unique and can never be reproduced. This whipped honey, with it’s uniquely earthy taste and color, is a reminder to stay grounded and enjoy each and every moment.
