Light cotton dipped in honey
Dip cotton in little honey. Light a match and try to burn it. If it lights and burns, then it is pure. This is how it works. Impure or low-quality honey contains extra water which prevents it from burning.

Add honey to a glass of water
Take a tablespoon of honey and put it in a glass of water. Pure honey shouldn't dissolve and stays together as a solid piece. So, if the honey dissolves, it is not pure.

Try the vinegar test
Take a teaspoon of honey and mix it with little water. Then, add a few drops of little vinegar to the mixture. If it turns foamy, it is time to chuck it.

Check with hard bread
Take a small piece of hard bread and put it in a bowl of honey. Remove it after ten minutes. If you find the bread to still be hard, it is surely pure. Adulterated honey will soften the bread.
