In high summer the bees have so much choice! The mix of flowers they work can be hard to decipher. However in some places they have a glut of one type of flower and in this case it was Phacelia, a blue flower grown on farmland for pollinators and to improve soil structure. I’m blessed with a great host near Bridge of Earn, George, who runs a farm in sympathy with the needs of pollinators. This honey came in when a field he had sown with Phacelia and crimson clover was in full flower. You can also tell when the bees are on Phacelia from the Royal blue pollen they bring in.
This is light summer honey, slow to set and with a lemony after-taste. Like all liquid honeys it may set in time and when it does it can be with a coarse crystal that drops to the bottom of the jar. In the unlikely event that you take a long time to finish the jar, it is perfectly edible when set or can be returned to the liquid state by gentle warming.
