To eat that is?

Despite the problems of OSR setting rock hard, when you get it creamed just right, I like OSR best.

Borage is also high on my list, but very rare these days.

First year Jim and not had any honey, fingers crossed for next year. However can I ask what do you mean by creamed? is it the same as blending?

Acacia without any doubt, trouble is I've only ever been able to buy it abroad. Bought some in Flanders in May; it was magnificent.

I love honey...any honey...I couldn't eat it for years as it triggered migraine, but luckily I have ourgrown them, not had one for at least a year, from two a month.

Rhododendron made me ill though..

Borage is one of my favs too....but only ever had one jar of it!
I also am a big fan of acacia. Delicate, light and smooth.

This might sound disloyal but New Zealand Clover honey is delicious - tastes like butterscotch!

Honey from the blackberry flowers alongside the canal: there's miles of it, so the honey is really blackberry-y. Superb - and very clear, doesn't granulate too quickly. Particularly good in comb.

Also lime flower honey. Really special.
