Frequently Asked Questions
What is meant by "raw honey?" Isn't it all the same?
No. All honey is definitely not the same. If you check the labels in stores, most honey is watered down so the honey distributor can make more money. This honey is generally pasteurized, which removes the healing and nutritional properties, as well as changing the taste. Raw honey, on the other hand, is honey that comes straight from the beehive. It is obtained by extraction and then is strained without adding heat over 120 degrees.
Why is it so dangerous to feed honey to infants?
It is possible for honey to have bacterial spores that can cause infant botulism - a rare but serious disease that affects the nervous system of babies under one year of age. Botulism is common and may be found in dust, soil, and uncooked foods. Adults and children over 1 are routinely exposed to it, but are not normally affected by the spores.
How should you store honey?
It is best to keep honey in a dry place, as honey absorbs moisture. Refrigeration will hasten granulation. Freezing doesn't hurt honey, in fact some people really enjoy a good honey-pop. Honey never goes bad, as the honey discovered in Egyptian pyramids was still edible. It's not necessary to store it in the refrigerator.
What to do with granulated honey?
Granulation is a completely natural process of true pure honey. All honey will eventually granulate in time but never spoils. Granulation does not affect honey's taste or purity. It may be gobbled down in granulated form, or you can restore it to a thick, yummy liquid.
How do you re-liquefy granulated honey?
The first thing is don't be in a rush. If you overheat your honey, it will lose some of the wonderful qualities you love. So place a glass container in a pan of warm water. It is not recommended to use the microwave. This will help liquefy the honey without depleting any of the nutritional value.
How do I convert a recipe from sugar to honey?
You can convert any recipe to honey if you follow a few simple steps. First, reduce the liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey you use. Second, add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda for each cup of honey you put in. And finally reduce your oven temperature by 25 degrees to prevent over-browning.
How do I keep the spices in Henry's Humdingers from rising to the top?
The spices in these blends naturally rise to the top since they are lighter than honey. Always stir before using, or tightly close the jar and store it upside down.
I would like to use this for the holidays (Passover), is it Kosher?
Henry's Humdingers are not yet certified as they simply can't afford one of the well known marks. However, they only use raw honey, kosher spices and kosher vinegar. They process in their own facility, and the equipment is not used for anything else.
There are spices on the top of my Humdingers - what should I do?
The spices are lighter than the honey, so they rise to the top, and of course raw honey crystallizes. You have a couple of options: you can warm it up and stir it, or you can store your jar upside down.
Henry Miller is determined to help save the bees. They are vitally important to the environment. To make a difference, he donates of portion of the money he makes to helping the bees - whether he turns a profit or not. His parents say that makes him an eco-entrepreneur.
When Henry was 11 years old, living on a farm in Western Washington, he learned about Colony Collapse Disorder from a beekeeper. He asked for a beehive for his birthday because he wanted to make a difference. He started selling honey by the side of the road to raise money. Then he added spices! Henry's main goal was to help save the bees, so a portion of the proceeds are donated to The Foundation for the Preservation of Honey Bees.
Raw honey will crystallize, though it doesn't go bad. Some peope prefer it crystallized because it's easy to use. But if you don't, all you have to do is warm up the jar in a pan of water, and it's back to smooth gooey goodness.
May be harmful to babies under 1 year of age.
About Henry's Humdingers
Henry's Humdingers: Give bees a chance
It all happened one day when me and my mom got on a plane and sat next to this bee farmer. He talked about helping bees and the dreadful hive collapse disorder. He told me humans couldn’t live seven years if bees disappeared. We wouldn’t have enough food because the bees wouldn’t be there to pollinate the corn or the wheat or even tomatoes. OK, I don’t like tomatoes, but I know we need them for stuff like pizza. At the end of the flight my mom said we could get bees and I could start my own company. I told her, Henry’s Humdingers. She laughed and called my dad and now its a real-life thing. The more I learn about bees the more interesting I think they are. Did you know only the old bees collect pollen? I love bees and all the good they do and it makes me crazy to think about all the bad things happening to them. It’s just ughhh, so I am donating part of what I make to my friends over at The Foundation For the Preservation of Honey Bees.
