Similar to olive oil, honey should be stored at a cool temperature between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. So, it's best to store it away from your oven or stove. Also, it should not be refrigerated. Extreme changes in temperature will spoil the flavor of honey.
The best container for honey is a tightly covered jar so it does not absorb moisture or odors from the air. As honey gets older, it will crystallize and solidify. This is a natural process that can occur after storing your honey for about three to 6 months. In fact, if this never happens, you'll want to question whether or not your honey is indeed natural or synthetic. If your honey solidifies, you can return it to its natural consistency by placing it in a pot of boiling water.
- Do not store honey in a refrigerator or near a stove or oven.
- Store it in an air-tight container.
