What is raw honey?
Raw honey is the concentrated nectar of flowers that comes straight from the extractor; it is unheated, pure, un–pasteurized, unprocessed honey. When honey is heated, its delicate aromas, yeast and enzymes which are responsible for activating vitamins and minerals in the body are partially destroyed. Heat treated honey is not as nutritious as raw honey. Raw honey will usually granulate and crystallize to a margarine-like consistency after a month or two. This crystallized honey is easy to put back into it's liquefied state with gentle slow heating.

Naturally Crystallized Honey - Naturally crystallized honey is honey in which part of the glucose content has spontaneously crystallized. It is safe to eat and use as it is or you can re–liquefy it by placing it on a bowl of warm water until it melts back to it's liquid state.

How to avoid crystallization

Store honey at room temperature in tightly closed containers. The optimum temperature for storing honey is 70-80 F.

Avoid storing honey at temperatures of 52- 64F, which is ideal for crystal formation. Don't store honey in the refrigerator. Refrigerator temperatures accelerate the process of crystallization.

Honey stored in the freezer will remain in the liquid state for many months.

  • Honey Bees do not sleep, they take mini cat naps. They work all day long in the hive or in the field depending on their age and the hives need. During the day they may be collecting nectar, pollen, water, propolis, etc. and at night they work in the hive building new comb, repairing old comb,
