honey color change
I harvested my honey late August from 3 different hives. It was a clearer honey than last year and has a marvelous flavor. I think more white clover and black locust than last year. Over the past several weeks it has started to thicken quicker than I would expect and some minor crystallization. Flavor is still excellent. I am assuming it was a little too wet yet and now will progressively crystallize through the next months. Does this mean I took it off too early? I did not use a hydrometer, although a friend has one which I may need to use in the future. I would like to avoid this mistake in the future. Thanks for suggestions.
