I have been trying different types of honeys.  My favorite so far is Tupelo and a close second and third would be orange blossom and buckwheat.  I also like a lot of the wild flower honeys.  Actually the only honey I have tried and not really cared for is pumpkin.

I like Buckwheat and Basswood the best. Not sure which I would pick if I could only have one.

Your are going to find this weird. I don't like honey. I like bees. My wife likes the honey. My neighbors like the honey. My wife and neighbors like how their plants are doing.

My favorite?  I have to choose?  Sourwood, I guess, but I find eucalyptus and buckwheat pretty interesting and Tupelo is quite nice.  Orange blossom is nice to.  Thyme honey is awesome.  Black locust is awfully nice.

How about Nebraska wildflower right out of the comb...

I don't really like honey either.  Lately I've been trying to get used to the unusual flavor, since it doesn't really make sense for me not to like it.

My main flow of honey is blackberry, very good, dark and well see about the mead later. grin...however I ran out of blackberry so I only have wildflower left, and I keep selling it off so that i can buy manuka honey.  Manuka has a very medicinal flavour, but it is so good! The fact that its so good for you too is a huge incentive.  My supervisor at work brought some manuka from nz for me and it is awesome.  I can see why people pay 30 dollars a pound for the stuff.  I don't know if its just because I quit smoking or the manuka, but my body is  ridding itself of toxins, the same as when I have done an herbal cleanse.  Horrifying really.....(overshare...)

Other than store bought clover I've only had honey from a variety of flowers, except last year I had a small taste of trumpet vine honey since that was all that was in bloom.  This year was what ever they could get during the drought.  It just started granulating (very fine crystals) but... man the taste...mmmm-mmmmm.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)
