Orange Blossom Honey: Orange blossom honey has a sweet and fruity taste that is reminiscent of citrus blossoms. Tastes a bit different than Florida orange blossom, and makes a fantastic mead.
Wildflower Honey: Light amber in color and is very sweet and robust. This wildflower is produced by placing hives in prairies and grasslands where bees have access to a wide variety of wild plants. The honey is naturally blended by the bees as they visit many different nectar sources.

Curt & Kathy's Sweet Mead Kit
This mead is very potent and almost a liquor. Takes me back to the days of the druids.
Though I've been a hobby winemaker for ten years, this was my first attempt to make mead and I must say that the instructions that came with the ingredients were comprehensive and easy to follow. The results were a very drinkable mead even before aging. I chose to put the mead in clear wine bottles with corks simply because they were what I had on hand. I used a #1 coarse pad to filter the mead before bottling. The mead seems to be taking it well; it's a lovely warm gold color and I can't wait to uncork the first bottle at my son's "bee friendly" wedding this fall.
Easy to make. After the initial 2 week fermentation my wife and I racked it out of our carboy and into our bottling bucket, added sparkoloid to help clarify the mead. Got it back into the carboy so we could keep an eye on the clarification. After 2-1/2 weeks, it was super clear. We racked it back into the bottling bucket and bottled it last night, and of course we had to sample. Absolutely amazing. We will definitely make it again.
