We all know that honey is one of the most healthy natural foods around, right? Have you tried green tea with honey and a little squeeze of lemon? If I feel cold in the fall or winter I love to sit and watch my dog and sip a cup of tea. It’s relaxing and I know it’s a very healthy drink. I’m doing a giveaway today with my favorite honey company that’s located in Shelley, Idaho. It’s called Cox’s. Now, I’ve never been to the store but I keep in contact with Rochelle, her family started the company. I also love to keep in touch with Dustin whom I met through the same company. Here’s the reason I only buy from their company. This is not a sponsored post, I am purchasing the giveaway to share with my readers. I thought I better make that clear upfront. These are my opinions on this raw, natural honey. In case you missed this post, How to Make Your Own Tea
This is a statement from their website and I quote “Cox’s Honey packages pure honey. Our gathering, extraction, and packaging process is meticulous because we feel that our customers deserve the best. We are one of a few that produce and package our own. That way we have a hands-on approach to assuring we do indeed offer pure honey. We are thorough in our analysis of the quality of honey we provide for our customers. We do not overheat, pasteurize, or filter our honey. Pure honey is healthy in its natural form and a great alternative to any kind of refined sugar. Everyone should benefit from the work that the bees put into such a fantastic product”. End of quote.
Not All Honey is the Same
Not all honey in jars and plastic containers is the real deal, so please do your research on the brands you buy before you store them. Please note, I cringe when I hear this statement, “I bought four 5-gallon containers of honey.” Here’s the deal, if you use a LOT of it each month, and I mean a lot of it, then that would work. It will not work for long-term storage. Now it will store indefinitely, but you will need a chisel to get the crystallized honey out of the bucket. Now if you live where the temperatures are REALLY hot, the honey may soften outside so you can scoop some out.
I only store mine in quart jars so I can let it soften in a warm pan or outside on the picnic table if it does crystallize. And it will crystallize over time. But the honey is still good, I remember once I was in a hurry and I could see chunks in the honey, dang, those chunks stayed as chunks in my homemade wheat bread. Oh, we still ate it but I wouldn’t dare take a loaf to a neighbor. Please remember, never heat it up in your microwave, well you could but you will lose almost all the nutrients. Let’s keep our honey in its natural raw form.
