Iowa produces over 1,259,000 pounds of honey from 38,000 honey producing colonies. Iowa's main floral sources for honey production are clovers. Clover honey has a light color and a pleasant, sweet taste.
Raw honey has not been processed, filtered, or artificially heated in any way. Pure honey is raw honey that has been gently strained. Darker honeys have a bolder taste.
Keep honey in a cool location away from direct sunlight and in a sealed container. Raw honey will crystallize more readily. If honey crystallizes, please the jar in a pan of hot water and stir while gently heating it. Do not overheat it.
