NOTE: Every honey variety has its own unique color and taste.
There are approximately 300 varieties of honey in the United States -
with flavors that range from delicately sweet to richly bold.
In general, the lighter the color of honey, the milder the flavor.
Try a light honey such as clover or orange blossom in Honey Packed Peaches and Honey-Lemon Jelly.
Experiment with a more robustly flavored honey such as wildflower or avocado
when making Strawberry Jam or any of your favorite recipes.
