What Is The Best Way To Store Mānuka Honey - PURITI

AlthoughPURITI’s raw Mānuka honey is frequently enjoyed year-round, the transition into a warmer season can influence the consistency and freshness of Mānuka honey. If you’re a honey lover, you’ll want to make sure you store your premium Mānuka honey securely. Unopened honey tends to be just fine, but once the seal is broken, it’s vital that you keep the jar in an appropriate location. 

Come on another journey with PURITI as we explore the best methods and practices when storing your raw Mānuka honey. After reading this blog, you’ll ensure your UMF™ Mānuka honey retains its high level of craftsmanship and potency. 

Where Should I Store Pure Mānuka Honey

Typically speaking, the best place to store your jar ofpremium Mānuka honey is in a kitchen cupboard or pantry. This is an ideal spot, as most kitchen cabinetry is quite cool and away from direct sunlight. While these environments are perfect for maintaining Mānuka honey consistency and quality, there are other factors that you should consider when storing honey. 

Many people will unknowingly leave their lid partially open and not fully seal the jar. It’s key to create an airtight seal with Mānuka honey as this prevents drying. Additionally, an open honey jar is a “welcome sign” for ants and, as such, will introduce several unwanted visitors to your cupboard or pantry. 

Why Is It Important To Store Mānuka Honey Properly? 

Keeping your premium Mānuka honey in a space that’s too warm will likely melt the uniform crystals that are created during the creaming by master craftsmen. Hot honey will lose the characteristic viscosity that we have come to love and become very runny and thin. 

Additionally, there has been speculation that overheating raw Mānuka honey may impact the flavour. This is also noticed by the visible darkness in the honey. However, don’t fret; Mānuka honey is commonly used around the world as a teaspoon addition to coffee or tea. You’ll be pleased to hear that mixing the honey in boiling water is unlikely to cause a shift in the flavour. 

Luckily, Mānuka honey is able to be saved if it’s made too cold or hot. A short period of time in the fridge will firm up the honey if previously left in an area too warm. Conversely, placing your jar of 100% pure New Zealand Mānuka honey in a slightly warm spot will decrease the firmness of cold honey. 

Are There Alternative Locations For Storing Mānuka Honey ?

As mentioned above, the conventional areas of honey storage are in pantries and cupboards; however, there are alternatives depending on your climate. If you’re in a warmer setting than most, you may have a wine fridge or appliance that can cool items to a lesser cold temperature than a conventional fridge. 

Remember that Mānuka honey (like all honey) is hygroscopic, and as such, absorbs moisture far more than most substances. A warmer climate will increase this rate of absorption, so you’ll want to make sure you find an area within your home that holds the honey at the most optimal temperature.
