Crystallised & Candied Honey

The luscious and grainy texture of crystallised honey adds something interesting and wonderful!

What is crystallised honey?

During the cooler winter months it’s common for pure honey to turn from liquid to a semi-solid state – otherwise known as candied or crystallised honey.

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!


When will honey crystallise?

Most honey varieties will candy or crystallise over time. The time it will take is dependent on the type of honey and the plant it was sourced from.

For example, varietals such as clover honey will crystallise quite quickly where as red stringy bark honey will remain in liquid form indefinitely. Colder temperature can also cause honey to crystallise more quickly.


Return honey to its liquid state

You can return crystallised honey back to liquid by placing your jar or bottle (lid on!) in a bowl of hot water and let it slowly warm up. We don’t recommend microwaving as this can overheat the honey causing it to darken and alter its amazing natural properties.

We love using crystallised honey in cooking and baking it’s really easy to handle on a spoon and won’t to run away!
