Raw honey is honey that is pure, unheated, unpasteurized and unprocessed. This is perhaps one of the most important characteristics and health benefits of the final product. It is a source of proteins, vitamins, minerals, beneficial fatty acids, carotenoids and bioflavonoids which are helpful to cardiovascular health. More benefits of raw honey include supporting immune system health and digestive health. Of course, it also helps with allergies too!
What Is Crystallized Honey
Pure, raw and unheated honey has a natural tendency to crystallize over time with no effect on the honey other than color and texture. What's more, the crystallization of honey actually preserves the flavor and quality characteristics of your honey.
What To Do With Crystallized Honey
If your honey has crystallized, you can eat it crystallized or you can make it smooth and golden once again.
You can return it back to its liquid state by putting the bottle (plastic is fine) into a a pan of warm to hot water (not boiling). It is best to put a small cloth or piece of wood so there is no direct direct contact between the bottle and the pan.
