Honey is a popular multi-functional sweetener that can replace white sugar in baking, sauces and hot drinks. The darker the colour of natural wild honey, the stronger the taste.
Raw wild honey may crystallise when the temperature falls below 14°C. This problem can be solved by gently heating the container in warm water.
