I attended a breakout session at a conference a few years ago. It’s mostly presentation. You can google honey judging and get an idea. Things like crystals and lint in the honey counts off. Jars should be filled to correct fill level which is just enough so as to not show space between honey a lid. Lid should not have honey underneath. No foam, wax, or particles on top of honey. Jars should not be sticky or have fingerprints on them. Honey should meet Grade A standard for moisture. Of course any hint of fermentation is DQed. No stickers, dirt, rust, scratches. Jar and lid should be spotless and new (don’t use pickle jars even if you’re sustainable). More I’m sure.
