Now unusual and hard to find, Buckwheat honey is produced in California, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as well as in eastern Canada. It is dark, full-bodied, and rich in iron -- a key reason which it's popular with honey lovers. Buckwheat honey has been found to contain more antioxidant compounds than some lighter honeys. It is perhaps the strongest and darkest of honey varieties. Most experts recommend using a strong-tasting type of honey, such as buckwheat for mead production, since the honey is diluted. I have yet to be able to find this honey, but am so curious to check it out because the sales people advised that even though it's a popular variety in Europe, Asians generally do not accustom well to its strong spicy aroma and hence many suppliers have stopped importing it due to poor demand.
