Perhaps you were looking for "Food For Thought" ?

If not, I think that would be a good alternative answer.

so eat your honey lots of nutrition.

found this on honney


All honey will at some point turn to sugar crystals. Some other terms for it are sugared, granulation, solidifying and crystallizing. This is a natural process. The crystals may be large or small, a grainy, sandy type or smooth and creamy type. What makes it crystallize is due to the type of flower the honey bee visited when she gathered the blossom's nectar. The floral source determines whether the honey will turn into a solid form more quickly or not. Some honeys while raw will stay in a liquid form for quite a while. Other honeys will turn to a solid form with in a few weeks. This is due to how stable the sugar crystal is in the nectar. Remember the sugar crystals we made as children in grade school, we evaporated sugar water with a string dropped in it for the crystals to form on. This is similar to what is happening to the honey.

This is not honey turned bad, or anything that is affecting the taste or quality of the honey. You may find you like it in this state!! It spreads on toast or bread without dripping off. It won't run off the spoon as you take it from the jar to your hot drink. To turn it back to a liquid, pourable state, use gentle warming of the jar in hot (not boiling) water.


Honey doesn't need to be stored in the refrigerator. This speeds up the crystal formation.

Honey will crystallize in the comb but not often in Florida. The spreadable honey is called creamed honey. My sister's honey from Maryland crystallizes within a year in the bottle. Mine has never crystallized. I'm sure it's the sugar content of the nectar. If anyone want to check out bees give me a holler. We're always looking for to help people get started in this hobby.

Set jar of crystallized honey in the sun. It will go back to liquid and not crystallize again. At least that has been my experience.

Tamada Tales Georgia

Georgians have long laid claim to being the first winemakers in the world, but could they also be pioneer beekeepers? After a thorough examination of some five-millennia-plus-old jars unearthed in Georgia, archeologists have declared that the artifacts contain the world’s oldest honey.

The honey stains found in the ceramic vessels, found 170 kilometers west of Tbilisi, are believed to be made by bees that buzzed around in Georgia 5,500 years ago -- some 2,000 years older than the honey found in Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamen’s tomb, which had been considered the oldest before, Rustavi2 proudly pointed out." Emphasis is mine.
