The purple blossoms of alfalfa plants result in honey with a light color, mild aroma and gentle flavor. Alfalfa honey can be slightly less sweet than clover honey. It is also less common than clover honey, as it is more difficult for bees to pollinate the alfalfa flower.
Alfalfa honey is produced across the United States and throughout Canada. While research about alfalfa honey is inconclusive, some people believe that it helps them to manage symptoms of PMS, digestive issues and kidney problems.
Alfalfa honey complements homemade granola beautifully. It can also be a grassy, sweet element in the vinaigrette for a fresh salad of baby greens. Dip fried tofu or chicken pieces in a mixture of mustard and alfalfa honey for a sauce both children and adults will love. Add it to spicy barbecue sauce for a sweet, complex glaze.
