Honey's moisture content (about 17%), low pH and antibacterial properties make it one of the only ingredients that will most likely not spoil. Regardless, it is still very important to store honey properly to maintain its integrity.
- Best stored in a sealed container at room temperature, between 64-75˚F (18-24˚C)
- Cooler temperatures, between 35-60˚F, hasten honey's natural crystallization process
- Honey stored at temperatures above 85˚F for extended periods of time will darken in color and be subject to subtle flavor changes
