Got a honey question? Well, hopefully you will find your answer RIGHT here! If not, send me an email at kate(at)sacredbee(dot)net and I’ll do my best to get you the info you need.
What processing has my honey gone through?
The honey you have is considered “raw”. It is straight from the hive and the only process it has gone through is the straining to remove bees knees, pollen and other bits of nature.
My honey has turned to crystallized chunks. Is it ruined?
No. Definitely not. Honey has natural properties that keep it from spoiling, but it will crystallize over time. It’s still perfectly edible and you are welcome to eat it in its current form. Or, if you want to make it smooth viscous honey again just follow these steps:
- Place your honey uncovered in its glass jar in a pot of water.
- Add a trivet or silicone mat in the bottom of the pot to keep the jar from resting directly on the bottom.
- Heat the honey over low/medium heat.
- Stir often and watch closely. You should slowly see your chunks transform back into beautiful, golden honey.
