    Around here it's pretty easy to id tulip poplar honey. I have seen honey that was supposed to be clover and honey that was supposed to be blackberry look exactly the same. Is there a easy way to id honey? I have people ask me what type of honey I sell. I guess I could tell them pure honey.

    Pollen ID is really the only way to identify the predominant floral source. Bring a few samples to the Young Harris Beekeeping Institute next year. There is usually a pollen analysis workshop.

    I don't have "mixed honey". I have a "Premium Select Blend". [img]smile.gif[/img]
