Honey Tasting and Black Jar Contests

"In a black jar contest, all that matters is how good the honey tastes to the judges." That's a lot different from the approach beekeepers take to standard honey judging! In fact, most beekeepers spend little time at all evaluating the taste of the honey their bees produce, and expanding their understanding of the connection this represents between them, their bees, and the blooming world around their apiaries.
Black Jar contests focus directly on the taste of beekeeper-produced honey, and rely on beekeepers to judge it!
