    Default Horehound

    Anybody know what flower the bees may have been on to give a light taste of horehound candy to the honey?

    Horehound has a twang and a bit of bitterness. Smartweed has a bit of both... it could be that IF it was from last fall.

    Bees do like horehound flowers. I notice Anise Hyssop flavor in my honey sometimes, or a least I think that's what it is.
