Ah, honey, honey
You are my candy girl
And you got me wanting you" The Archies
I got an email today from one of the vendors we carry at Divine Goods, Two Hives Honey. Normally I would skim the email for pertinent info and then move on. This time I read the entire email and I have it flagged and saved because it answered so many questions I have had about honey. I have had honey crystallize and I thought that meant it had gone bad. This is just not true, thank goodness!
According to Two Hives, when you notice your jar of two hives honey starting to change state, that is what is called crystallization. And crystallization of honey is completely natural and does not change the quality or flavor of the honey (though a new texture may tell your brain it tastes a bit different!). This changing of states is what happens to raw, unfiltered and unheated honey.
And trust me when I tell you that Two Hives Honey is not something you want to ever get rid of before the jar is empty. It is delicious!
