    most honey is around 80% sugar - though you can find some with less

    agree with previous comment that I havent seen anything that isnt 100% honey

    Honey is mostly sugar. It's just different types of sugar to the refined white stuff that comes in a packet. And as it's sweeter you generally need less of it.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.
  • Oh I see... so how come u can buy honey for like 2 pounds and then some for 30 pounds? How can they justify the costs ?

    Different bees, different bee diets, different locations.

    That's all.

    Why is a bottle of champagne from one vineyard more than a bottle of fizzy wine a local supermarket sells?

    Different grapes, different soils, different vineyards.

    If you don't know the answer .... then just go for the cheap honey because it's still honey and unless you're going to become a fan you won't know any different. If, after a few jars, you start to try others and prefer one/other, then investigate the difference between the two and start to become a bit of a honey connoisseur. Most people don't... they just head for the label that says "honey".

    tried cretan honey on holiday, its so far ahead of anything else I have ever had. Normal honey - virtually no flavour, cretan (and probably other premium honey) fragrant and lovely.

    What will you be using the honey for?

    On your porridge?
    In recipes such as honey-glazed pork?

    The honey you may be thinking about could be Manuka - Google it.
    It's from Australia and NZ.

    I've also tried Greek wild honey in a village up in the mountains and also Indian forest honey and they are very different in taste to what you'd get in this jar:
