Creamed Honey Uses, Raw Creamed Honey Storage, Creamy Honey, Buy Creamed Honey, Soft Set Honey, Spun Honey, Whipped Honey
Contrary to its very deceptive name, “creamed honey” is made from 100% Raw Honey, with nothing else added or taken away. It is also called soft set honey, spun honey, or whipped honey.
Almost all honey crystallizes over time – some while still in the comb, and the rest within a few days, weeks, or months of extraction, depending on the particular type of flower from which the bees have gathered their honey nectar.
The more glucose within the honey, the more quickly it will crystallize.
Honey that has begun to crystallize normally, in large, jagged crystal shapes, has a gritty texture. Crystallized honey is not going bad, but in fact is going through a normal process that helps nature preserve one of its most amazing products.
At Elden Foods, we've developed a way to control the crystallization of honey, making it feel smooth, stay creamy, and taste amazing! The antidote to hard crystallized honey is to buy creamed honey!!!
First, regularly crystallized honey is crushed until all crystals are microscopic. This becomes the seed for a larger batch of creamed honey. Then, this seed is mixed with liquid raw honey, at a 1:10 ratio, and kept between 55-70 degrees Fahrenheit, all while being kept moving. After just under a week, a batch of very smooth, very white (because glucose is what crystallizes, and glucose crystals are naturally white) creamed honey is ready for bottling!
This process gives our honey a creamy smooth texture and a delicious robust taste. People use soft set honey as spreads for toast or bagels, as it is thicker, and does not run off the knife like liquid honey. It’s also used for baking! Its enhanced flavor gives products baked with it a unique sweetness that tastes great, and which is nearly impossible to duplicate with other sweeteners.
Because creamed honey does not revert back to being gritty, it is perfect for storage! If kept at approximately 60 degrees Fahrenheit it will store in its rich creamy state indefinitely.
