An observation. Possibly an ignorant or naive one.It's actually a beautiful white Canadian canola honey. Excellent product. Just being sold too cheap.
This is not my experience. Canola honey is quite sweet and not a lot of other taste. I use it to blend with honey with a "bite" to it and dark in color. Canola honey is light color when liquid and white when crystalized.And it isn’t an issue with packers because pasteurizing fixes the issue. But I will say I agree canola has a distinct “tang” to it.
Hi John,I observe a definite swing away from 'light colored' honey. The 'alternative' view seems to be that if it looks like supermarket honey it is not to be trusted, and on top of that there is the perceived increase in medicinal value of the darker lines.
Recently I added a darker honey to my trading table at a substantial premium in the price. It outsells my traditional favourite varietal (the eucalypt commonly known as Yellow Box).
Years ago I offered my stack for sale to the wholesalers, and mentioned the presence of one of our Australian Eucalypt honeys that is quite strong and dark. Immediately they started slashing their offering price. I kept it a few more years and at the Farmer's Markets it outsold the lighter varieties. When I ran out of the strong honey my patrons were very distressed.
But if I were a wholesale buyer I would offer the producer more money for what he has little of, and poor prices for what he has the most of. SIMPLE!
Just remember: it is the producer's property and it cannot sell for any price he has not agreed to!
