Honey From Our Neighbor

Posted: October 11, 2015 in Articles



We have a neighbor who is a policeman. He also has a lot of animals like goats, chickens, ducks, a pony, dog, and cat. Last year, he added bees to his collection and this year, he presented us with his very own honey.

I also recently read an article about honey. More specifically, what difference it makes what kind of flower the honey comes from. I didn’t even know it made a difference, and I definitely didn’t know all the different flavors and consistencies that honey could get from different flowers. I thought it was really interesting, and I discovered that although clover honey is marketed as really high-quality honey, it’s not the best out there. It’s still good, but mostly, it is (obviously) the most readily available.

So if you are a honey aficionado, you should definitely read the article! Then again, if you were a honey aficionado, you’d probably already know this stuff. So if you aren’t, you should read it anyway!

Anyway, we ran into our neighbor today and he told us that his honey this year was mainly sugar water honey, and a lot of it wasn’t from flowers. Therefore:

-Sugar water honey: very sweet and light honey with an average color.

Still, we are enjoying it a lot and we are thankful for our great neighbors. We hope he is always safe on his patrols.
