We help my father-in-law to keep a hive of bees at his place in the Adirondack region of New York. He brought down a super of honey for us to extract for him.
It was all completely capped, but the moisture content was about 19%. It also has a really different smell and taste than we usually get around here - like strong orange blossom honey.
Any thoughts on what would cause the high moisture content in capped honey, or what nectar source in the north would produce honey similar to orange blossom?
