Hi! I have always wanted to try making homesteader honey. the last few years I was working too much and by the time I htought on it again it was too late in the summer.
I have a few questions though, maybe because the recipes I have found seem too simple. What kind of clover so I use? There are lower bush white ones, and they can sometimes turn pink. Then there are a higher bush one that seem more purple. Also, it says to use a certain number of blossoms of fireweed. When I made fireweed jelly it called for several cups of fireweed, so I was curious if it was individual blossoms from one fireweed stalk or all the flowerd on one stalk considered on blossom????
I read some other things about crystalization so I am going to get a candy thermometer.
Any tips would be much appreciated!
