Our recent honey harvest was a success; the extraction was quick and easy, and the honey tastes great.
However, when you take a spoonful of it (not much), it burns your throat, almost to the point that everyone eating the honey needs a glass of water or something nearby. Anyone have an idea as to why the honey is like that?
I haven’t treated the hive yet this year, and the honey box used for the harvest was completely new, not tainted by mite meds or anything. The hive is in central Maryland, if that helps. I’ve heard of the taste of honey burning because of certain flowers being foraged from.
