Holly honey, also known as Gallberry honey, comes from a small evergreen holly (or inkberry) bush that grows along the South Atlantic and Gulf Coast. It produces a unique honey that is popular throughout the piney woods and swamps of southeast Florida.
Holly honey is desirable for its rich, elegant taste. Thick and aromatic, it’s a perfect table honey and great for baking. Holly honey is high in pollen and enzymes and therefore slow to crystallize, so it’s also known for its lack of granulation.
Holly honey is one of the highest honeys in diastase enzymes and one of the lowest on the glycemic index. High in antioxidants and vitamins, it’s also one of the most nutritious honeys.
