How do you store your Manuka Honey?


Honey can last forever, that's right, if kept in the right condition you can eat honey well past its best before date! But when it comes to manuka honey and harnessing it's many benefits we do need to follow a few rules, we recommend:

1. Best kept at ambient room temperature, that means in the pantry - not the fridge.

2. Cold temperatures can cause crystallization in honey, where it returns to its natural state

3. Likewise warm temperatures can cause the honey to return to it's natural liquid state.


All of our honey is 100% natural so if it goes hard, or liquid - both are natural states of honey and can still be eaten. Because we collect direct from nature the honey can vary in both colour, thickness and texture from batch to batch, region to region, year to year- all because well, nature is unique and always evolving and changing.
