Not ragging on B3. It looks like my LHBS's honey prices are the same. I guess it's just easier than trying to locate an apiary.

I've never used this honey by itself, but I've made a couple of batches of pyment with it that turned out good.


The Costco honey is now a bit over $10. Bulk honey at Winco is $3.25 a pound. I'll be going to the Gresham farm market next saturday, last year I bought 3 lbs of meadowfoam honey for $10.
