The lavender specific to Provence has become emblematic of Provence. In this picturesque region of southeast France, lavender is found everywhere: alongside homes, in public parks, and alongside the roadways. Lavender runs cinematically for miles in gently rolling fields crowned with stunning, resplendent blue blossoms over which bees hover lazily, getting their fill. In July, lavender scent wafts throughout the entire region, putting one in a restful, optimistic state of mind (lavender is famously stress-relieving).
Yet surprisingly, pure lavender honey hard to find. It is expensive to produce because it requires a lot of bee work: lavender flowers are small and don’t yield much nectar. So beekeepers instead encourage multfloral grazing. Knowing this, when one of our longtime Provençal pâtes de fruits producers started making these pure lavender honey drops, we jumped on it. These soft, tender honey drops are made exclusively with iconic yet rare French lavender honey. The taste transports you the fields surrounding Aix-en-Provence in July.
