And you thought only bees could make honey! This is a recipe used by my husband's grandmother. That was when you could actually purchase clover in a regular grocery store! Use ONLY organic flowers. No sprays whatsoever. Use white clover that is beginning to turn brown to add color to the honey.

Excellent recipe. My mother made something similiar but Fireweed instead of rose petals. There is a real difference in taste.
