*Best Before 30.6.19 - honey doesn't go off!* This Lemon Blossom won three Gold Stars in the International Taste Awards. This is the highest award you can get for honey. This honey actually tastes of lemon. A delicate honey that is one of our top selling honeys. Most jars are half runny, half set.

At this time of year raw honey can crystallise quite quickly.

This is a process that many people aren't familiar with - often because they have previously bought honey in a place that is a lot warmer than the UK or because they have got it from a mainstream supermarket. A warm climate delays crystallisation.

Crystallisation doesn't tend to happen to supermarket honey because it has usually been pasteurised and fine filtered.

Pasteurisation delays the crystallisation for a year or more - you see heating honey breaks down the natural crystals in the honey so they don't grow. (More than this pasteurisation damages the antibacterial properties of the honey - and generally degrades the flavour and properties of the honey.

There is something else that the supermarkets do that drastically delays the setting process - they put put it through very fine filters, which removes the good bits - a lot of the pollen, propolis, beeswax and sometimes bits of royal jelly. These bits help to 'seed' the honey - it starts setting around the bits.   

So I hope you can see that raw honey is completely different to processed honey. Unfortunately what the mass producers do completely changes the honey. The end result is a bland substance that doesn't resemble the fine living liquid that the bees make.

So if your honey starts to solidify (or has solidified) it's not something to worry about - in fact it is a sign that your honey is raw. 

However, if you would prefer it liquid do this:

Put it on a radiator and drape a tea towel over the jar(s).  

Leave it overnight. If it's not liquid by morning then leave it a little longer.

You might think that the heat from this process will damage the honey - the important thing is that you don't heat the honey beyond 40 degrees (which is how hot the hive can get in the summer when the bees are at work evaporating moisture to thicken the honey). 

If the radiators are very hot then put something like a book under the jars and then drape a tea towel over the jars.

The book will protect the honey from direct heat above 40 degrees from the radiator and the tea towel will ensure that hot air can circulate around the honey helping to liquefy it.
