Why has my honey crystallised and what does it mean?

by eChic.com.au

Do not fret, your honey is still good. 

 

If your honey has crystallised, don't worry, this is totally normal for pure unadulterated honey. 

 

Processed honey can look clear and lovely on your shelf for a long time, this has been heated up and altered for the consumer market. 

 

Naturally Australian honey produced from native and exotic floral species is composed as follows: 

 

Fructose 44%

Glucose 35%

Moisture 17%

Sucrose 3% 

Other less than 1%

 

This means Australian honey is made out of over 80% sugar, which is a lot of sugar in very little water, and that make the solution unstable, but also means it will not spoil as the water content is not high enough to start the fermentation process. 

Glucose being less soluble than fructose is the crystallisation 'starter' but other factors such as pollen or propolis in the honey as well as cooler temperatures can help speed up the process. 

 

So in conclusion, honey that crystallises is good for you and you can still enjoy it. Some people actually like it as it's not so messy, but if you prefer it runny you can simply place the jar in some warm water to bring it back to its liquid state. You may need to repeat this a couple of time but please don't put it in the microwave as this will destroy all of the goodness in the honey.

How long will my fresh meat last in the fridge?

by eChic.com.au

When kept in the fridge, it's best to consume your meat within 4 days. The meat we supply is fresh, so it is suitable to freeze too. Raw sausages can be frozen for up to 2 months, hamburger patties and mince are good for 4 months, steaks, chops and roasts - 6 months, while whole chickens can be kept frozen for one year.

How do I store my fresh meat?

by eChic.com.au

Your meat is prepared on the day you receive it - you can't get fresher than that! To ensure your meat lasts as long as possible once you get it home, make sure your fridge temperature is set at 5°C or below. It's essential to segregate different meat products, eg chicken/lamb/ beef should not be stored in the same container. Do the same for cooked and uncooked meat toavoid contamination.

Why are my bananas green?

by eChic.com.au

Your bananas are picked by Wes and Mel at Ocean View Produce, and sometimes our bunches arrive a little on the green side.

Rest assured they will ripen in a few days, and when they do, they are super sweet! If you want to speed up the process, try popping them in a paper bag with an already ripe banana or apple. This will increase the amount of ethylene gas circulating around the green fruit.

We think it's better that your bananas arrive a little bit greener so they ripen up at home, rather than on their way there!
