How to Store Honey

To store honey properly, it is recommended to keep it in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Use a tightly sealed container to prevent air exposure and maintain its freshness. Avoid extreme temperature changes.

It is best to store honey in its original container, but any glass jar or food-safe plastic container will work as well. Avoid storing honey in metal containers as it can oxidize.

It is not necessary to refrigerate honey, as it can solidify and become difficult to use when you need it. Honey can be stored at room temperature for an almost indefinite period of time if it is stored properly.

If your honey crystallizes, don’t worry! It is a natural process and does not indicate spoilage. To restore it to its liquid state, simply place the honey jar in a warm water bath and stir occasionally until the crystals dissolve.
