Today’s Kona Cotton color of the day is Honey.
I think this color is a lighter more mid-tone brown-beige and wouldn’t necessarily consider it honey-colored. But raw and unfiltered honey is a much darker color resembling a deeper brown. The honey that we see as golden has often been refined and filtered several times.
Raw, unfiltered honey is full of plant nutrients that act as antioxidants. Pasteurized honey heats it to high temperatures to make it easier for bottling but can destroy the vitamins and enzymes naturally found in it. This is why raw unpasteurized honey is the best. Well, at least it is, in my opinion.
And just so you know, if your honey has crystallized, that doesn’t mean it’s bad. Don’t throw it out. It’s perfectly good (no expiration date). To get it to liquefy again, just put the jar in very warm water for about an hour. Those crystallized portions will melt to liquid honey again and be pourable. Just make sure the honey hasn’t heated too much or become too warm before eating.
And you shouldn’t give a child under the age of 12 months honey because of this information. It’s always best to follow your pediatrician’s recommendations regarding infants/children and honey.
But I guess we should be talking about fabric honey… Kona Cotton Honey to be precise!
