    I was wondering if anyone in the eastern US is familiar with this plant. A beekeeper locally says you have to freeze the honey to kill the taste. It's blooming now and there are miles and miles of it. I'm thinking of taking honey off now and letting all of the rest go for winter stores.
    Plant is called stickweed, box stickweed,or yellow crownbeard http://www.ppws.vt.edu/scott/weed_id/veeoc.htm

    I'm familiar with the plant... I grew up in Natural Bridge, VA and it was seen frequently. I do not, however, know about its flavor in honey...
