View Full Version : Lima Bean Blossom Honey?

06-24-2010, 01:49 PM
I'll be traveling to Delaware to visit my brother in the near future. A local apiary has some fresh lima bean blossom honey that is only coarse-strained to remove bee parts and large pieces of wax.

Upon googling, the only description of the honey that I could find is: "Lima bean yields a light honey that remains high in moisture content". I guess I'll have to give it a try when I get there.

Is anybody here familiar the the characteristics of this honey? Did it make a good traditional mead?

Sorry, I'd like to say "Bean there; Done that," but alas, I've not tried it. :D

Oh no....I see another round of pun posts coming......

I'm afraid I have not tried it either.

Only one way to find out! Congrats on being able to "STALK" down this honey.
