    Big Grin Green Honey!

    I saw a jar of naturally green honey last night at the Northeastern Oklahoma Beekeeping Association. It was emerald green no joke! Would have fit right into the Wizard of Oz. NeilV can confirm this.

    Guess all the other beeks were green with envy.

    Put it on eBay and make a fortune in greenbacks!

    We get green honey sometimes if the bees work salt ceader trees. I've never tried it though can't imagine it would taste to good but when mixed with all the other honey it doesn't matter.

    They said it tasted like regular honey. It comes from some bog plant. I have to find out.

    Pure Purple Loostrife, Perhaps?

    Most definitely pure loosestrife, we get tons of it up here at the end of the flow. Heavy body, blends well with lighter stuff for a great mix. Good on its own in coffee!

    I missed this first time around, but I did see this with my own two eyes. It was green as can be, not geen tinted but green. They said it was purple loosestrife.

    How is it when someone asks a question, some guys respond with an unrelated answer, like green with envy. I needed some answers and have to scroll through some time wasters.

    Did you notice the age of this thread?


    If you need some answers, start a new thread, and ask some questions.

    Your attempt at humor? Or what?

    Yeah, Its much better when you stick to the topic, like this response that you posted on a thread on the Post Office:

    Is Kim a beekeeper?

    Fair enough. I was just a little freaked about my green honey. I guess I over reacted.

    If you got past the second post you would have had your answer. The second Post was the only one I saw which didn't answer the question.

    Had to do a double-take when I saw the post by magnet-man (Bill Samples). I think of him each time I put on my UltraBreeze. Rest in Peace, Bill.
