    Default Honey that is too sweet...

    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.

    I've tried tasting my bees honey that was made from sugar and It tastes just as you discribed. Not to say some flower won't produce something similar.

    Some nector sources do have much more sugars than others.
    I'm not tense, Just terribly, terribly alert!

    Yeah...it looked like honey and tasted like honey but not strong which I expected since it was light colored, but it was so sweet and more liquid in consistency then the honey I usually get. That is why I was wondering if there was a sweetness variation in honey.
