I know this question is debatable depending on personal opinions, as I have found on the internet.
1. Can anyone explain how Raw Honey is, "Raw" Honey? In other words, the definition, from the beekeepers point of view.
2. I uncap my comb(serrated knife now, probably a heated one this year), hand crank the frames in a galvanized unheated extractor, pour it through 2 different sized Micron filters and then it sits in the bucket for storing. Much of my honey has crystallized so that it cannot be poured. So, I heat water until it boils and then I turn off the heat and place my container of crystallized honey in the water for a while and then it is good to go.
So.....please vote, in your opinion, is my honey still considered to be raw? If not, at what point did it become, "non" raw and then what is my honey considered to be?
The reason I ask this all is because I have always considered my honey to be raw, it wasn't until a friend of mine wanted to know if my honey is "raw". Not wanting to be at all incorrect, I could not explain why my honey is considered raw other than I really didn't consider my honey to have been, "processed" in any way. Thanks, juzzerbee
