I have some kind of dark brown granulated matter in my money. Does anyone know what it might be?

How old is the honey? Honey will granulate over time. Is this freshly extracted honey, or bottled honey? Was the honey strained to remove large chunks of dirt, wax, pollen, or bee parts?

I would first find out how it was strained.

I use two strainers, with the one moving most of the wax and then filter it thru a soup boullion strainer and it removes everything, bugs, pollen and anything else that might have gotten into the honey.

The honey was still in the comb. It was stored in the last couple of months. The dark stuff was stored in cells. I guess it could be pollen.
