Help!  My Honey Is No Longer Liquid!

honey, crystalized
Did you know that real honey crystallizes? Raw and unfiltered honey, made by our 60,000+ employees, tends to take on a white, solid appearance over time – sometimes a short time! It may look hard and crunchy. Or maybe it has turned completely solid. No worries. It’s still good and tells you you’re buying the real thing, not some honey-flavored fructose. 

While honey doesn’t expire, it can change shape. This shape-changing process, called crystallization is completely natural. Read on! 

When your honey crystallizes, it means that you’ve chosen a real, natural honey product like ours. Crystallization occurs because of the natural qualities inside. The natural sugars in honey will bind together and begin to form little crystals, which can start making your honey harder. With differing blends, some honey will begin to crystallize faster than others. Since out honey is raw and unfiltered, it also contains pollen. The bits of pollen can also provide a platform for the crystals to begin forming. But pollen is important and is prevalent in 100% pure honey. It can also help you overcome local allergies! 

You can still eat and cook with crystallized honey exactly as you normally would. It will melt into your hot drinks and into your baked dishes just like liquid honey. If you prefer not to mess with your favorite treat and want to keep your honey liquid again, simply give it a bath. Take a large bowl, fill it with warm water and let your honey sit until the crystals melt away. Be warned though, the longer it has been crystalizing, the harder it is to return to a liquid. Instead, spread it on toast, use in tea, or use it in baking. That's what we do.
