Sadly I didn't have a check weight, but am going to see my local butcher with a jar of honey and my scales in hand to see if he'll check my scales for me. I also didn't know it was technically illegal to overfill a jar (which does seem ludicrous to my simple mind), but I learnt lots!
Having a GHA mentor would be a very good idea. If I pass ( and it's probably a big If), I will be that mentor for my association.
Thanks once again.
It is indeed ludicrous and it is not illegal to overfill a jar. You need to state a minimun weight. If it's over it's fine. It's only illegal if it's under weight.
Or at least that is what our local environmental health officer explained to us. I trust her judgement.

I'm curious about the definition of naturally granulated honey here. Do you mean honey, like Oil Seed Rape, that naturally granulates or are we talking about a liquid honey seeded with fine grained crystals? Or is there another method?
