Honey (Storage + Cooking Tips)

About Honey

Store honey at room temperature out of direct sunlight. Over time, liquid honey also tends to naturally crystallize – a process where the honey appears to be thickened, become lumpy and grainy. The rate of crystallization varies for the different types of honey. Crystallization is easily reversible and does not affect the taste and quality of the honey at all, although it adversely changes its appearance. So, please don’t throw away sugary-looking honey, it hasn’t gone bad!

To bring honey back to its natural consistency, all you need to do is boil water in a small pot and place the jarred honey in the hot water. As soon as the granules dissolve, take the jar out of the water and let it cool.

Ideal Storage

Honey should be stored in a cool dry place, making sure that the container cap is on tight since honey tends to absorb moisture from the environment

Store honey at room temperature. If honey gets below 40 degrees it tends to crystallize.
