HONEY has a wide range of uses – from substituting sugar to healing wounds.
However, it's likely that you're not storing it correctly.
In order to keep it fresh for longer, it's essential to store your honey properly. That means putting it in the right type of container, in the right spot in your kitchen, and at the right temperature.
Here's exactly what you should be doing:
Honey often comes in plastic bottles to ensure easy use. Despite this, it shouldn't be stored in them as it can lose its moisture.
Speaking to Martha Stewart, a beekeeping expert highlighted the type of bottle you should store your honey in.
Glass is optimal, as plastic is known to absorb water vapor, gas, and odors.
With your honey stored in glass, you ensure that you maintain the best liquid to sugar ratio for preservation.
Now that your honey is in the correct jar, your next concern should be where you're storing your honey.
Honey should never be stored in areas with high temperatures or moisture.
The best place to store it is at room temperature in a place away from heat like sunlight or your stove. A kitchen shelf or pantry is ideal.
And while you're minding the heat, you want to be sure you keep your honey out of cool temperatures as well.
On top of that, you'll also want to keep moisture and air out of your honey.
This means that when you go to scoop it out of its glass container, you should use a dry and clean spoon. Your honey may go bad otherwise.
Previously, a food and health expert also revealed you've been storing your olive oil all wrong.
