The honey on the left was from our very first honey harvest. The taste is light, fruity, sweet, but not too sweet. It’s honestly unlike any honey I’ve had before.
The honey on the right is from the same hive, harvested about 6 weeks later. It is dark with a strong, sweet flavor. It almost has a molasses hint to it. It is also very, very different from even the local honey I’ve eaten before.
It’s amazing to me that two foods that are so different were made by the same bees in the same hive. I’m just blown away. I suppose this is what they are talking about when you read “varietal” honey. The difference is simply amazing!
So what about you? Do you keep bees or buy local varietal honey? Let me know all about it!
