Stuff that's fun to know about Marshall's Farm Honey

HONEY FACTS and TRIVIA

It's About That Sticky Stuff - Honey...

When Fresh Honey comes out of the bee-hive, it is runny, & sticky. With time, all true pure honey will crystallize or granulate, but honey will never spoil. Honey was found in the Egyptian tombs, & it was still good. Do not refrigerate honey, because refrigeration will hasten crystallization. Honey can be frozen. It will remain liquid when it thaws out. To reliquify crystallized honey, heat it in a pan of warm water, microwave it, (keep temperatures under 110 degrees) or put it on the dashboard of your car on a hot day & watch it go liquid again!

There are many types of honey: Liquid Honey, Creamed Honey (whipped or spun honey which is finely crystallized honey), Comb Honey (which is right out of th ehive exactly how the bees made it. The comb (beeswax) is edible. Just pop some in your mouth & chew... It's the original candy and chewing gum in one!. Try a chunk of comb spread on a piece of toast or waffle. It will melt right in - eat the whole thing. It not only tastes good, it is good for you too. Chunk Honey is honeycomb immersed in a jar of liquid honey. A sweet idea for a great gift.

Raising Honeycomb is considered to be the beekeeper's art. It takes the bees much longer to make comb honey. All of the beeswax in honey comb, except for a starter strip one inch wide, is made by the bees. The bees must consume 2 to 3 pounds of honey (which is their food-by the way) to produce one pound of beeswax. In mid-summer, when the honey flow is at its peak, it takes the bees about two weeks to make one frame of honeycomb (3 to 6 pounds.)

HONEY IS....


Heavy: a 12 oz. jar equals an 8 oz measuring cup.

Sticky: when using honey in cooking, put oil in a cup or spoon so honey comes off easily

Gooey: slightly warmed honey is easier to work with in cooking.

Moisturizing: The bees mix the pollens and nectars and leave about 17% water. Foods prepared with honey stay moist & fresh longer than foods prepared with sugar.

Energizing: Honey contains the simple sugars, glucose & fructos. It is assimilated into your body quickly and naturally, thus it is often used as a source of quick energy.

Fat Free: Honey is a fat free food. In honey, there are 60 calories per tablespoon. Also there are traces of protein in honey (pollen floating in the honey provides the protein.) You will also find enzymes, vitamins & minerals in trace amounts in honey.

Eat it Raw: honey tastes best & is best for you when it is uncooked. At Marshall's Farm, we never cook our honey. If the honey crystallized in a storage bucket, we have to warm the honey so it can be poured into jars for you. The honey is warmed by placing the bucket in a stainless steel water bath where the temperature gets no higher than 90 degreees. It is hotter than that in the beehive!!
