OK... My friend and I decided to start beekeeping this year out at our properties in Fannin County Texas. I started with a NUC and I doubt I will be pulling any honey this year, but he started with complete hives and he pulled a half frame of honey off this weekend. The smell is decent, and the texture is a bit thin, but fine. The taste isnt bad either. The problem is after eating some, about 3-5 minutes after your mouth and throat start burning and it lasts for an hour or more. I am not talking about a lot either, like dip in a knife an inch and lick off what is left when you pull it out.
Any ideas what could cause this? I read that Crotan/Doveweed could maybe cause it? I see a lot of that plus a lot of golden rod right now along with various other flowering plants. So far 6 people have tried it and all reported the burning sensation, so its not just someone being allergic. Honey was pulled this weekend.
