This classic type of honey has an interesting greenish hue and an intense, aromatic taste reminiscent of a walk in deep pine forests. It stays liquid for a very long time and tastes great for the celebration of strong sauces, game dishes and of course for breakfast.

Honey is a pure natural product without any preservatives. Due the high sugar content of about 80% the honey is almost non-perishable.
But you also can make some mistakes in storing - which can let the honey start to ferment.
Honey easily takes on foreign smells. Therefore always keep the container airtight.
Under no circumstances should honey be stored in direct sunlight, but kept in a cool dark place (18 degrees). Here it can be stored without quality loss for up to five years.
Once the container is opened the honey should be consumed within 12 months.
