The Delicious Forms of Honey

Most of us know honey as a sweet, golden liquid. But, in fact, honey can be found in a variety of forms.


Liquid Honey

Free of visible crystals, liquid honey is extracted from the honey comb by centrifugal force, gravity or straining. Because liquid honey mixes easily into a variety of foods, it's especially convenient for cooking and baking. Most of the honey produced in the United States is sold in the liquid form.


Creme (or Spun) Honey

While all honey will crystallize in time, creme honey (also known as spun honey, sugared honey or whipped honey) is brought to market in a crystallized state. The crystallization is controlled so that, at room temperature, the honey can be spread like butter. In many countries around the world, creme honey is preferred to the liquid form.


Comb Honey

Comb honey is honey that comes as it was produced--in the honey bees' wax comb. The comb, as well as the honey, is edible!


Cut Comb

Cut comb honey is honey that has been packaged with chunks of the honey comb.
