Crystallised honey and sore throats

Taking a spoonful of crystallised honey suck on it slowly helps to reduce a sore throat and will start the healing process. Take it first thing in the morning when you wake up and dont eat or drink anything for an hour. Repeat before going to bed dont eat or drink anything for an hour and a half then take a spoonful of crystallised honey and suck on it slowly.

Many people are under the impression that crystallised honey has “gone bad” or that it is a sign of contamination. No No No! It is actually a sign of high quality honey. Don’t throw your crystallised honey out, unless you like to waste delicious food.

Temperature is a factor in crystallisation. Honey will crystallize in the hive if the temperature goes below 50ºF (10ºC), and honey will crystallize in your jars if you have a cold cupboard. Finding a warmer spot to store your honey will slow crystallisation.

Honey which has a higher concentration of glucose crystallises quicker, and some types of honey are more resistant to crystallisation because they have low glucose.

Also honey with higher concentrations of pollen crystallises quicker . Fresh, raw honey has a lot of those in the form of pollen grains.

Many of our honeys have crystallised for all of the above reasons though some have resisted.
