In order to keep it fresh longer, it is essential to properly store your honey. That means putting it in the right kind of container, in the right place in your kitchen, and at the right temperature.

Here is exactly what you should do:


Honey often comes in plastic bottles to ensure easy use. Despite this, it should not be stored there because it can lose its moisture.

Speaking to Martha Stewart, a beekeeping expert pointed out the type of bottle you should store your honey in.

Glass is optimal, as plastic is known to absorb water vapour, gases and odors.

With your honey stored in glass, you ensure you maintain the best liquid to sugar ratio for preservation.


Now that your honey is in the right jar, your next concern should be where you store your honey.

Honey should never be stored in areas with high temperatures or humidity.

The best place to store it is at room temperature in a place away from heat like sunlight or your stove. A kitchen shelf or pantry is ideal.

And while you’re mindful of the heat, you want to make sure to keep your honey out of the cool temperatures as well.

On top of that, you’ll also want to keep moisture and air out of your honey.
