This final note today, in which Christmas comes early, in a manner of speaking.
The Utah Department of Agriculture and Food says red honey is showing up in some beehives around the state. The suspect is a local factory that makes candy canes.
Officials figure the bees have been eating the leftovers, and thus the red honey. It’s insult to injury, when you think about it, because:
- state regulations say only a product that originates from a floral source is actually honey; and
- Utah is, officially, the Beehive State.
