Honeycomb is honey directly from the beehive. Honeycomb is the arrangement of hexagonal wax cells build by honeybees and filled with fresh honey. Bees use a hexagonal shape for compactness and to minimize wax production. Freshly produced beeswax is of white color. When cells are capped, it is the best indication that honey is cured and ready to be harvested.
Eating honeycomb provides greater health benefits than liquid honey, since you also reap the health benefits of beeswax. Honeycomb can be eaten alone as a sweet treat. It can be spread on toasts, added to your favorite beverages, added to your fruit bowls or ice cream.
To avoid honey crystallization, keep in room with great light exposure and temperature above 20C. Avoid storing in dark and cool cabinet, never place in the refrigerator.
