Good answer, as a matter of fact so was the first, needed a little humorOk, so my attempt at humor fell flat. I would not keep honey in a car. On a sunny, but not even hot day, the interior temperature can easily climb into the 130° range. Not good for the plastic jars or the raw honey you intend to sell.
Is it possible that the the fact they were packed in tight boxes somewhat insulated them?I have left honey in the car, forgetting to pull it out after the market. Temp in the car who knows, but horrible hot,we were in the 90's, but the honey in the bottles was only around 120, used my instant on temperature gauge. It was in there most of the day. Packed tight into boxes. Surprised me it was that cool.
No problem picking up the bottles, not hot enough to burn the hands.
Maybe, it was the normal boxes the plastic bottles come in. The lids were all open. Just each box full of bottles. If the honey was over 115 I would think that you would feel a burning pain. I had no problem handling the bottles, even the metal lids on a few glass bottles. It just felt warm. And it was a all day sunny day. I remembered them around 430p or so. The market was the evening before, night temps were sitting in the mid 70ishIs it possible that the the fact they were packed in tight boxes somewhat insulated them?
