Traditionally, honey was sold in the comb, but nowadays most consumers prefer honey that is extracted from the comb. This processed honey is clean and ready to use, and can be stored over a longer period of time. To ensure that honey keeps its quality, you have to respect three basic rules: harvest only honey that is mature; maintain high hygienic standards during harvesting and processing; and ensure that all equipment and packaging containers are clean and dry.
