Set or runny honey

All honey made by honeybees starts off as clear or 'runny' honey. Some honey types, set rather quickly, and are best enjoyed as a natural set honey. All our spring honey is available as a soft set honey which is perfect for spreading on bread, toast or croissants.


Our summer honey is a clear honey, this is ideal for adding to yoghurt or porridge as well as being delicious on fresh crusty bread.


All pure English honey will set over time – but it can easily be returned to its 'runny' state again.

Simply loosen the top and stand the jar in hot water.

Heat very gently until the honey becomes liquid


Remove the top and place in a microwave oven on the lowest power for a short period of time. Remember that the honey in the centre of the jar will continue to liquify after the heater timer has finished.
