In Response To: Anyone have bee hives? Honey ()

...Most store bought honey has been heated above 105 or somewhere in there which destroys some enzymes and stuff so it's not the same as raw honey. Touching on Andre's comment, one year one of my hives made toxic honey due to some native flowers that had some nasty alkaloids in the flowers. It tasted weird with a bad aftertaste and a buddy helpin me mess with it got a finger full and had to stop and lay down when he got woozy and had some weird shit happening in his mind for a little bit. So, yeah, it depends on what's around plus how it's treated. Both can affect taste and medicinal properties.

Neighborhoods can be some funky places to keep bees...
