    Default Bottled my first honey and well..

    It looks radioactive !? Kind ov a slight greenish hint . My wife said,"it looks like golden honey with a lime green tint, it looks like it should glow in the dark." Uh oh ! I only used a six hundred filter when I extracted. Tastes awsome but kinda scary looking . Should I be worried?

    If you need practice worrying by all means continue, but the color is not an issue. The taste is. Has someone been feeding bees in your area and putting fruit coloring in the syrup?

    Linden honey has a greenish tint to it as well. Can you post a picture for us to see?

    I just have never seen honey from a hive and it looks different. Now I'll sell it for twice as much because it's "really special green tint honey, the most sought after natural honey by a guy somewhere " thanks guys
