I’ve collected a bunch of pollen this year and I’m trying to figure out the best way to sell it. I remember reading somewhere, a while back, that frozen pollen maintains the highest nutritional value, and I don’t know want to mess with trying to dehydrate the pollen. So what if I filled a jar with pollen and covered it in honey? I assume the honey would prevent mold, and possibly hold the nutritional value?
you don't have to dehydrate it. Best nutrition is when it is kept frozen. I like to leave mine open in the freezer for 24 hrs then it goes in a Ziploc bag. It is shelf stable after that, but doesn't retain its nutrition when left on the counter top indefinitely. Stirring freshly frozen pollen into honey is possible, and will preserve it, but the flavor changes too. (I don't like to take it this way)
