Refrigerator or pantry, kitchen cabinet or open shelf: what is the best way to keep honey? We’ll tell you all you need to know!

A general rule of thumbs is that honey should stay cool and away from any direct light, preferably in a dark room. Honey is a very heat sensitive food product. At temperatures over 40C, all the essential minerals in honey are ruined. This is why the best option is to store it at room temperature.

Along with that, honey should always be kept in a resealable container so it won’t absorb the moisture in the air, causing the honey to ferment. The optimal choice to store honey is in an air tight container to avoid any foreign odors, such as coffee or cheese, which in turn could  jeopardize the flavor.
