Since ancient times, honey has been used for its sweetness and medicinal properties. We find honey as a sweetener or as a therapeutic in recipes dating back thousands of years.
Today, we send our honey to the labs at Texas A&M to be analyzed for its pollen count and so much more. Our honey label shows the levels of minerals, trace elements, vitamins, enzymes, and – most importantly – a variety of pollens found in every batch.
Before you use your honey in any recipe you must decide whether it’s important to you to preserve its therapeutic properties. For someone desiring the delicious sweetness of honey, you can feel free to bake, boil, and cook your honey… you just have to realize that every moment the honey is heated degrades the quality and decays the beneficial honey sugars and other elements we find beneficial.
However, if you value excellent honey for more than it’s sweet flavor, it’s imperative not to overheat in any way. Be sure to keep honey below average body temperature (98.6) to preserve the antibacterial properties, enzymes, and nutritious sugars.
