Hi
just extracted a super of honey.
I put the super on as a last minute thing just to give the bees some extra room the 1st week of september and they filled it
The honey is a very very pale lemon colour but i was just wondering what they made it from?
any ideas welcome

HB honey doesn't have much colour to it, but do you think HB honey may have diluted the coloured honey to give it a pale colour?
