Raw Honey Vs Heated Honey
Common store bought commercial honey brands are basically a refined version of truly raw honey. Commercial brands are thinner, clear, golden pourable liquid. This is how you can tell if you have the real thing, in the way it looks. True, unprocessed honey is often golden color (or thick and whitish) and is creamy smooth with fine textured crystals that store indefinitely, improving with age. Real honey doesn’t pour, it spreads. You can scoop it out with a spoon and add it to your favorite recipes and desserts.
