Frequently Asked Questions
How does Aunt Sue's Raw & Unfiltered Honey differ from Sue Bee Honey?
Both Sue Bee Honey and Aunt Sue’s Raw & Unfiltered Honey are pure honey. But while Sue Bee Honey is filtered (which helps remove more debris that comes from the hive), Aunt Sue’s is strained. This allows more of the pollen to remain in the honey, causing it to retain the natural characteristic of honey – glucose. Because of this, you may notice that your raw and unfiltered honey crystallizes more over time. If it does, you can reverse this. Simply place the closed honey bottle into near-boiling water that has been removed from the heat. Leave until both have cooled.
What is honey granulation (crystallization or sugaring)?
A big misconception is that, when honey crystallizes, it has gone bad. Not true. Honey does not spoil. In fact, it’s actually a sign of real, quality honey. Granulation is a natural characteristic of pure honey, which does not harm it or indicate any deterioration of the honey. It is also easily reversed, without harming the honey. Bring a pan of water to a boil, turn off the heat and place the container into this boiling water. Leave until both have cooled. If you want to prevent granulation, try this. When buying honey in large containers, pour a manageable amount into a smaller “table server” for your table. Store the remainder in the large container in your freezer. Freezer temperatures are too low for glucose molecules to migrate and form crystals. As the table server empties, remove the large container from the freezer long enough for it to warm so you can refill the smaller container. Then replace the large container in the freezer. Note: Before you pour more honey into your table server, be certain it contains no crystals. These act as ‘seeds’ for the new honey to granulate around – a condition which will speed up granulation.
How do I turn crystallized honey back into a liquid?
If your honey has crystallized, you can make it smooth and golden once again. Simply heat a pan of water on your stovetop with low heat. Remove the pan from the stove and place your honey package inside. Be sure to take the lid off your jar before placing it in the warm water. This gentle transfer of heat to the honey helps bring it back to liquid form without overheating the honey.
