What to Look For in a Honey

As honey doesn’t spoil, it’s actually one of the easier foods to find and store. Obvously you want to pick to your own tastes, but you should avoid any honeys that add flavorings or (shudder) preservatives. Avoid honeys that don’t tell you what nectar source the bees had used to create your honey. If the bottle just says “Honey”, put the bottle down and find a bottle that says “Clover Honey” or “Tupelo Honey”.

The less handled the honey is, the better, as well as the less exposed to heat (It tends to crystalize with heat fluctuations).

If you have the chance to taste the honey before purchasing it, all the better. Most honey shops at your local farmer’s market will allow this.

Go.. enjoy!!
