The source of the flower nectar for the honey impacts how it crystallizes.
Some flowers naturally create smooth granulated honey and others create a grainy granulation. As the bees forage differently every year the result is also unique each year.
Our naturally granulated honey has a grainy texture this year and you may notice some frosting which is the name given to white patches on the side of the jar. This results when the honey naturally granulated in the jar and shrinks slightly causing a very fine film of air that gets trapped between the honey and the side of the jar which forms crystals. It alters the appearance of the honey but it does not alter the flavor or the quality. When you open the jar you will generally find it is just up against the jar edge and does not affect the delicious flavor.
Granulated honey can be softened by placing the jar into warm water.
