I recently posted about our wonderful and unexpected honey harvest this week (yes, October!). We were pleasantly surprised at how many supers the girls had filled. Last night we extracted the honey. Kind of strange.... the honey has a minty flavor. A little unusual... and unexpected. I must say that I like the previously harvested honey better. I don't know how this honey will taste on my english muffins!
Question: The only flowers that I knew were blooming were golden rod, asters, and a few red clovers. Where does the minty flavor come from? Do asters make minty honey? And what do you think I should call this honey? Will it sell? I have about 100 pounds. Thanks as always!
