I saw the sun shining through some honey and thought it would make a nice picture.  "Honey on a Sunny Winter Day"

We can always work up a trade . . . do you have any interesting honey to swap?  I've always wanted to try mesquite . . .

Come to think of it, I will trade any one or all of these jars for some unique varietal honey.

Black Locust - Very mild honey, with a unique viscosity . . . VERY "Thick".

Linden- This is probably the most unique honey I have.  In 2012 we were in a drought, so the summer wildflowers were not producing.  However, the linden trees (with deep roots) produced prolifically.  This honey as about as pure "linden" as you will get.  It has, what I would consider, and extreme minty taste.  Some almost described it as a "menthol" flavor.  Very unique.

Goldenrod - By far my favorite honey.  There is not a bit of "stink" left in this honey.  It has an amazingly complex flavor.  This is my go-to honey.

Those are definitely three that I haven't tried. Sounds interesting though.  This I my first year and am excited to see what I get.  Hope in the future I can get some Kudzu honey. Being from the south shouldn't be too hard.

I am not close enough to the Hill Country of Texas for Mesquite.  We get lots of Chinese Tallow and Goldenrod in the fall.  But I would be more than happy to work up a trade.

Trade?  I could do that.  Preferably I would like a varietal honey.  I'd be willing to try anything I haven't tried before.
