Fresh harvested honey is not crystalized. Old stock? I think so
eBeeHoney Response: We actually dont say that it is fresh harvested (though perhaps you saw a variety that was and assumed that meant all of them, understandable), and we even have a description of it being crystallized at the time it was sold.
We actually will sell both the liquid and the crystallized, if we have both, as there are a great many people who prefer the crystallized honey as it can be easier for them to portion out. We do have descriptions of the state of the honey as well, by double clicking on the picture of the honey you are purchasing. We do not harvest clover honey throughout the year as we only harvest it during the late summer months.
And one other thing you may wish to know about raw clover, it tends to crystallize in about 3 months or less after harvest. Sorry that it somehow caught you by surprise, but our definition of raw honey meaning we do not heat the honey means just that so once it crystallizes, that is how we sell it.
This keeps all the healthy benefits of honey for you and also more flavor. Unfortunately there are those who sell raw honey that have actually heated it and that leads to confusion such as this. Have a wonderful evening.
