Gary, lovely, you should be ding dang proud of that!!!  Most beautiful and wonderful day, Cindi
There are strange things done in the midnight sun by the men who moil for gold.  The Arctic trails have their secret tales that would make your blood run cold.  The Northern Lights have seen queer sights, but the queerest they ever did see, what the night on the marge of Lake Lebarge, I cremated Sam McGee.  Robert Service

SWEET!!! (pun intended  :-D)  I'm sure it tastes as good as it looks!  Looks like a touch of linden (basswood), mmmmm.

Just a tip, you can see how fast it crystallizes, but if it is as fast as mine and you don't use them for more than a few weeks, now is a good time to pop them into the freezer and just take them out when you need them.  That will stop crystallization temporarily and keep the jarred honey from getting cloudy.

So freezing honey in glass jars won't shatter the jars?
