    Default How to store comb honey for 6 months?

    So, I find that the people who buy comb honey go back down south after labor day. If I put all my comb honey in a deep freeze will it stay good for 6 months? I would of course put in in a plastic bag first.

    Any thought?

    I buy miniframe comb honey from a friend of mine. It comes in clamshell deli tray containers, 5 to a bag. I store them in the corner of my livingroom, the plastic grocery bags full of comb honey all in cardboard boxes. Very little shrinkage.

    I store the whole super in the deep freeze in the basement. I could probably save room by cutting and packing it first. When I need it, I pull it out and set it to warm up to room temp. I also built a little closet with a dehumidifier to store supers at a warm (80 degree) low humidity environment.

    Any super coming into the basement goes into the deep freeze first, even it is due for the farmer's market the next week.
