Why is your honey a light color and more solidified than other raw honey?
Where and what type of honey plants bees forage on will determine honey color, level of nutrients, fragrance and taste. Extreme cold region honey is lighter in color than tropical honey. Such wild honey plants as acacia, alfalfa, basswood, and sweet clover produce an almost colorless honey (known as water color) which when crystallized turns almost white. The strength of crystallization (hardness) determines the level of live state nutrients and heat sensitive enzymes. A powerful natural occurring energy stored in the extreme cold region allows this honey to crystallize within a three weeks maximum period upon extraction. The harder the honey the better. Tropical honey will never be bale to match the nutrients and strength stored in this solidified honey.
