    I jusr found the source of all my current honey, a neighbor planted 10 acres of red clover. My interest pertains to clarity; is clover honey darker? my honey from the fall was very light in color and VERY good. All the clover honey I have ever bought has had a stronger flavor and I don't particularly care for it.

    Now I know how they were filling frames up in as little as 2 days; I wish I had realiazed it sooner, I could have just loaded up the boxes and let it rip.

    Crimson clover maybe? They say bees can't make honey from red clover.

    No, it's pretty light.

    That's that overheated, overprocessed stuff they sell in the grocery store. That has nothing to do with what honey tastes like.
