Real or Fake honey

West Seattle Honey is sourced from hives in Seattle.  Knowing where your honey is sourced is imperative, else you could end up with fake honey which is prevalent when honey is imported.  Can you spot the fake honey?  The “imitation honey” I bought recently (on purpose as a teaching aid) gave several clues it wasn’t real honey – besides the #1 clue – the label saying “imitation honey” (duh!) – 2) the bottle had an expiration date (real honey never goes bad) 3) The “honey” flowed to quickly when I turned the bottle upside down – real honey is viscous and usually starts to crystallize over time if it hasn’t been pasteurized 3) it tasted like syrup, the fake honey didn’t exhibit the complex flavors you get with real honey. Spend a little more and get the real stuff (and the health benefits!)
