Tupelo Honey Peach Galette

Tupelo honey is one of the most sought after honey varietals in the world. Renowned for its delicate flavor, tupelo honey is produced by honeybees along the banks of rivers and swamps in South Georgia and Northwest Florida. Tupelo honey truly is Southern Gold. With a rich, buttery, floral flavor, tupelo honey is the gold standard for many honey connoisseurs.

Because of it's rich, buttery flavor, it's the perfect honey to use in any baking recipes! We paired it with some South Carolina peaches and made the perfect summer treat.
