Lighter honey usually has a milder flavor (not quite as strong).
The darker honey will typically have a more intense flavor- and
it all depends on what the bees visit!
Did you know there are different types of honey? Different types of honey come from different flowers- because the nectar that the honeybees collect varies from one plant to another. In fact, there are 300 varieties of honey in the United States- about 3,000 worldwide!!!
3,000 different types worldwide? That means that you could try a new variety of honey every day for over eight years!
Some common and popular types of honey: Clover- one of the most readily available sources of honey in the United States. Most clover honey comes from the Midwest (especially North and South Dakota, and Minnesota). Buckwheat- a very dark honey that has a rich, robust flavor. Many people use the darkest varieties of honey for baking. Check out some honey recipes at the "Cooking with Honey" tab or on honey.com. Fireweed- Fireweed honey from Alaska could possibly be mistaken for water! It's a much lighter color and has a very light taste, too.
