How to use your honey
Honey is a versatile food with many uses! Honey is often used as a sweetener in drinks like tea or coffee. It is also the perfect condiment on toast, biscuits, or with cheeses, or drizzle it on a smoothie bowl for a special treat. Many baking recipes can use honey as a substitute for sugar or other sweeteners.
How to care for your honey
Honey never spoils if stored correctly. Store at room temperature in a tightly sealed container. If you have honey that has crystallized, simply warm it in a bowl of hot tap water until it returns to liquid.
