Re: FW: Green honey
- We've had a few isolated cases of green honey in Philadelphia. One was tested and came back as food coloring. It seems similar to what happened in Redhook, NY.
He really should have it tested to see if it is natural. Would be pretty exciting to hear there was natural green honey out there. And if not, at least you'll know.

- A beekeeper friend in eastern Kansas says:
no idea - we have a honey here that has a green cast to its surface -
looks a bit like motor oil but not like this photo - really looks
like a dye of some sort - in nature many blue-greens are bilins but
these don't occur in plants as far as I know.
- This link is about Green Honey in France, rather than South Africa.http://www.inquisitr.com/352990/mm-plant-turns-bee-honey-blue-and-green/Have you learned more about the green honey there? The green honey in France was traced back to the M&M candy plant which left uncovered containers outside - the bees collected the colored ingredients.
