Years ago, I was at a fall fair and visited a honey vendor. I was skeptical when I saw the vast variety  of honey offered. After all, how could honey vary in flavor? Well, I learned my lesson that day. I sampled several and was surprised how different they each were. It all depended on which plant flowers the bees were feasting on. While clover honey may still be readily available in grocery stores, I highly recommend trying other varieties from your local farmers market, farm stand or specialty store.
