Black button sage
For black sage to be pure, it will be water white and 14% moisture or less. Very sweet and mild. The great thing for the handler is it does not crystalize. Then I have customers that love calif. Buckwheat. It is amber , low moisture strong flavor.
Meadow foam is far and away the best, tastes just like cottoncandy. Almost to sweet. I bought some tupelo , its third right behind blackberry.
You folks from the South who say Tupelo and Sourwood are the best...
John Skinner spent a couple days with me in my apiaries last week, making nucs...we even went to the Mozart Festival at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe.
Anyway, John "WAS" a lover of Tupelo and Sourwood, and I know both are world famous, and he is from Tennessee, but...
Basswood comb honey is now his favorite. Mine too.
Dark usually is the best I think. Buckwheat has always been my favorite, which is dark. It is hard to find someone that plants it anymore. If you do find a farmer who does. Ask if he would like your bees. You will be happy with that honey.
