How so Store Your Honey:
Honey is stored in a covered container in dry place at room temperature. If it is exposed to the air, it tends to lose its flavour and absorb moisture. Honey tend to become darker and stronger when kept for a long time but still usable. It may also crystalize if kept at too cool a temperature. However, this does not affect the quality of the honey. Sometimes, a white layer will form on top of the honey as tiny air bubbles are squeezed on its surface. Pure natural honey rarely gets spoiled. To remedy crystallized in honey in honey, place the container in warm water until the crystals disappear.
