I tried almond honey from 1 of my hives 2 weeks ago when they came back from pollinating almonds. The honey tastes TERRIBLE! I had to spit it out it was so bad. Very bitter, not the expected sweet flavor. I crushed and strained a small jar just so a few of my friends could share my experience. My girlfriend said it tasted like burnt caramel. Others got this weird look on their face, kind of like the one a person makes when expecting something sweet, and it's sour instead. It was a good laugh. There is no market for this honey. The bees don't care, so let them keep it. My experience this year with almonds was the REALLY big hives drew new wax and were loaded with almond honey. Anything else just maintained weight. At least they didnt go backwards this year.
