We harvested some honey from our deadouts in January and tucked it away in the pantry.
Now it looks like this.
This is creamed honey.
All honey will eventually crystallize - especially when temps get below 55 degrees or so. Creamed honey happens when the honey crystallizes into tiny, tiny crystals instead of the big rock candy type crystals. So, creamed honey is named for its looks, not its content. There is no cream in creamed honey.
Happy accident! This stuff is shelf stable and spreadable. Much easier to keep on a spoon. It will melt nicely when heated or mixed with liquid. [See tomorrow's post]
