    Then don't tell them you filter it, but that you strain it.

    here in Il, we have county inspectors sanctioned by the state, so genearly a quick conversation with the Health Dept will keep you safe, or the other is ignore them till they come knocking. We have to deal with our as we have another business they are active at, and at the moment they want no part of the bee business...

    As for adulterated... they say intentionaly. such as a flavored product, or mixing up honey butter (we asked)

    One thing about handling used jars is unless you keep empty boxes to put them in what do you do w/ them?

    Of course the obvious question always arises when talking about this sort of thing ..... How much right does the government have to interfere with the small business of beekeeping and regulate as they do? Just a question

    For what its worth in Ohio:

    Per Ohio Dept of Ag.:

    "Q. Can jars for honey be reused?
    A. Yes. They must be washed and sanitized. If the kitchen or honey room was inspected, proof would be needed that the jars were sanitary and kept in a sanitary condition."

    I'm not saying that is my question, of course I'm not saying its not. Just a question I heard at my local beekeepers meeting last week. One member was unhappy with the amount of regulation he was forced to jump through.
