From Holy Cross Abbey

Made by Trappist monks in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia using locally sourced honey. The monks take liquid honey and naturally crystallize it so that it thickens slightly and has the texture of butter, making it soft and spreadable. Adds sweetness and flavor to hot tea and cereal; wonderful when spread on bread, toast, pancakes, bagels or waffles. Creamed honey can be stored at room temperature and has an indefinite shelf-life. Contains only honey.

10-oz. cup

Holy Cross Abbey: Berryville, Virginia

The Abbey of Our Lady of the Holy Cross is a monastery of the Cistercian Order of the Strict Observance (Trappists) which was born out of fire. When the monastery of Our Lady of the Valley in Valley Falls, Rhode Island, tragically and spectacularly burned to the ground on the night of March 21, 1950, the monks of the abbey were left without a home. While they labored to re-establish their community at a new site at Spencer, Massachusetts (St Joseph's Abbey), plans were also developed for a new foundation. A site was found in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia on land originally surveyed by George Washington. A fieldstone house built in 1784 as a hunting lodge became the centerpiece of the new monastery.

Products of Holy Cross Abbey include creamed honeys, chocolate truffles and chocolate-covered pieces of fruitcake called "Fraters". The Monastery Bakery, where the monks make their fruitcakes, is the Abbey's chief means of support. Hospitality in the form of retreats and spiritual direction is offered at the Abbey Guest House.

I drive 225 miles not only to visit my beloved St Josephs, but also to pick up a few variations of this creamed honey. The cinnamon is my favorite! I also get the plain creamed honey for my hot teas and it is warm and comforting. From the shop at the Abbey to my home here on Long Island, NY, it is well worth it!
