Sweet clover honey

This is the most traditional American "regular" honey that we have.  Mild and sweet, with no bitterness or bite, Sweet clover is great for sweetening mild teas, is the perfect addition to salad dressings and marinades, and is by far the best honey to be slathered on a buttered biscuit.  

This type of clover grows like a bush, rather than as a cover crop for farmers.   In western washington, it grows along riverbanks and along the highways.  In eastern washington, it grows far more abundantly.  Actually, you can find sweet clover growing in many states, from Michigan to Montana to New Mexico, California and beyond.   Ours is from eastern washington! We could consider sweet clover a type of wildflower honey.  This honey also crystallizes the fastest, so you might get a jar that's already turning white.  This is actually a nice thing about sweet clover, that it crystalizes fast and uniformly, making it smooth and dripless.  Remember, you can still scoop it out and it will melt just the same as runny honey;)
