Hi -- first timer here.

Is it normal for some sort of sediment to appear at the bottom of a honey jar after a few days?

See photo here:

I did not extract this using an extractor since I lost my hive & was only able to salvage a single frame of pure comb. I used a hot butter knife to remove all the comb and then strained it all through some cheesecloth.

Obviously, my main question is -- is this stuff edible?

TIA!

If the bees made it and you did not contaminate it then it should be edible. As I am your neighbor I can say that we do frequently get two different shades of honey here. We also get some VERY dry honey. If there were very dry honey on the same frame with some uncapped or very fresh wetter honey they might actually seperate because of the density differences. I have actually seen different layers come out of my extractor and stay seperated in the buckets for months.

Regards -- Fuzzy
