This honey is naturally crystallising!
Did you know that most honey varietals will naturally crystallise over time?
This is a completely natural process that does not alter the taste. There is also no nutritional difference between honey that is liquid and honey that has candied despite its grainy appearance, in fact it’s actually a sign of pure 100% honey!
The luscious and grainy texture of crystallised honey adds something interesting and wonderful!
