    You are very welcome. Melanie asked me to post it here for you guys. Very good info. The honey market is being bombarded with fake honey. Don't get fooled ! THE best way to know, is to buy honey from a local source.

    We can find locally grown honey every Saturday at our local farmer's market. It's raised by a couple about 4 miles up the road from us - so I can use it to ease allergies.

    I take it for the same reason, Susan.

    Fortunately I have a couple of good sources for local honey! I also occasionally buy it on my infrequent trips to Trader Joes. In a recent "honey test", they were one of the few places tested where ALL of the honey they were selling was actually pure honey, not fake or cut with fake stuff!
