Like a winemaker has to taste other vineyards' wine, Bernsad, a Beekeeper has to taste other honeys.
at our place we currently have the following honeys going, to satisfy all family tastes:
1. Leatherwood Honey of course, from the westcoast of Tasmania, "the Rolls-Royce of Honeys" haven't tired of this honey ever, still like a drop in tea, especially herbal teas.
2. A "Matured Stringybark' honey made in 1952, from Coolah, specifically, along the Coolaburradundy River, this honey got stored by an irate beekeeper when the then State Government put on a two penceper pound tax on honey. Its still tasty, thick and dark, treacle like.
3. Some Glen Innes Iron Bark honey - excellent.
4. Honey from a producer in the Blue Mountains - creamed honey for those who like that sort of thing.
5. 'Sugarbag' honey from native bees, sourced from North Queensland, -runny, expensive, clearish, tasty, has to stay refrigerated.
6. Good old home grown honey, can't beat it.
