I purchased some local honey a couple months ago and it was light in color and slightly more runny then the honey I was used to from another source. This honey was also very sweet...too sweet actually. I couldn't eat it alone and ended up just using it in recipes. I know there are variations in taste and color but is sweetness something that varies as well or is it possible that this batch of honey had sugar syrup in it? Not to say this apiary would do that on purpose but perhaps they extracted too soon or something.
