30 Aug: @listhelen British beekeepers don't tend to sugar feed. How do you know that is what they were doing?
30 Aug: @listhelen I'm just so surprised thats all. Was it obscure honey like rape honey which can b odd it is illegal to hv processed sugar in it
30 Aug: @listhelen Where are you buying from and what happended to the honey? Did it granulate? Go solid or maybe ferment?
30 Aug: @listhelen how do you know it is contaminated honey. All the London beekeepers I know only produce fresh, raw honey. Nothing processed.
