Store your honey at room temperature. Even after opening, you do not need to refrigerate the honey.
Honey does not spoil – ever. It does not need refrigeration either. Just take good care not to drop food particles into the honey. Raw honey does crystalize. That is perfectly natural and does not mean the honey is bad.
As with any raw, unprocessed foods, honey is not recommended for infants whose immune systems are not fully developed, a process that occurs usually in the first year. Therefore it is not recommended for children under one year of age.
No, there are many varieties and flavors of honey, depending on the flowers from which bees collect nectar. All of our honey is collected from areas where plants that have not been given harsh chemical fertilizers, pesticides or been genetically altered in any way.
Honey crystallization or granulation is a natural phenomenon by which honey turns from liquid (runny) state to a semi-solid state. Crystallization takes place because honey is an over-saturated sugar solution.
Honey is a highly concentrated sugar solution. It contains more than 70% sugars and less than 20% water. There is much sugar in honey relative to the water content. This means that the water in honey contains an extra amount of sugar than it could naturally hold. The balance between those two sugars leads to crystallization.
Honey varieties. It all depends on where the Bees Buzzed
Honeybees visit 50 - 100 flowers during one collection trip.
