There is a slight difference, but they are interchangeable in recipes. It just comes down to personal preference.

Orange blossom honey is gathered from the blossoms of orange trees. Clover honey is gathered from clover. Each has a little different flavor.

Clover honey IS regular honey. It just means that the bees have spent most of their time foraging on and collecting nectar from clover. There is also acacia, manuka, wild flower and heather honey amongst others.

Honey made by bees that draw pollen from acacia flowers has a milder, more floral taste than regular (clover) honey. It is also much softer in consistency, with an almost glasslike appearance. Unlike clover honey, it does not crystallize.

manuka honey is made from the manuka bush that grows in New Zealand, and Australia. Where as clover honey is made from clover. manuka honey is caramel color, and to me tastes like cough syrup. You wouldn't try it in your tea more than once. manuka also supposedly has better antimicrobial properties.

Honey is honey for the most part. Clover Honey is honey that is created by bee hives that are predominantly surrounded by clover flowers. The flowers used have some affect on the flavor, for instance, bee hives in orange groves will have a subtle hint of orange in their taste. According to the National Honey Board, to be identified as Clover Honey, at least 50% of the flowers from which pollen is collected must be that type of flower. Bee Honey probably refers to the fact that there isn't a specific single type of flower that can be identified in the honey.

Mesquite honey is made by bees. Apiculturists place bee hives in areas with many mesquite trees and the bees do all the work. The bees drink nectar from the mesquite flowers and use it to make their honey. Man only has to harvest the honey at the end on the season.

There are three different kinds of Mesquite trees, the Honey Mesquite (Prosopis glandulosa), Screwbean Mesquite (Prosopis pubescens ), and Velvet Mesquite (Prosopis velutina).

The cost for a jar of honey varies depending on the size of the jar, the type and quality of honey, the type of store it is purchased at and the geographic location where the purchase is made. A standard 12 ounce jar of clover honey, purchased at a chain grocery store in the US will cost between $2 and $3, however, specialty honeys such as mesquite, orange blossom or buckwheat honey can cost more than double that.

Yes. Beekeeping comes under agriculture. Hives are kept in orchards and fields growing crops so the bees can produce the various types of honey. If you see a label with "clover honey" that means the hive was in a field/area growing clover.

Honey is a naturally sweet product produced by "honey bee's" using the pollen of flowers. (Clover being the most popular). Pure Honey will contain no additional ingredients, this includes high fructose corn syrup or additional sweeteners and/or flavors.

Alfalfa, Avacado, and Clover. (There are actually more).

The taste and color of honey is determined by the type of flower where the bees get nectar. For example, buckwheat honey is made when the bees predominately access buckwheat blossoms; clover honey from clover flowers. My sister kept bees at one time and her bees accessed a variety of sources of nectar from surrounding farms. That was the best honey I've ever tasted.
