Busy bees go about their business producing nature’s perfect food (did you know that honey is the only food substance that never spoils?) behind closed doors. Deep inside the hive, the golden, sticky-sweet stuff we love spooning into tea is just one of the treasures being spun. To keep their homes sturdy and strong, a structure called honeycomb is created, and in its waxy walls is where the liquid gold is stored.
Vitacost® Raw & Unfiltered Honeycomb in Honey is packed with this piece from the heart of the hive, surrounded by 100% pure, raw honey. From bees that foraged on fields of colorful wildflowers, it’s teeming with fresh, full-bodied taste, complemented by subtle floral notes. Because it’s minimally processed, the honey’s natural nutrients—vitamins, minerals, enzymes and amino acids—remain intact.
Why you’ll love it
Non-GMO, naturally gluten free and stable on your shelf as long as you let it last, Vitacost® Raw & Unfiltered Honeycomb in Honey is a healthy and sweet addition to your day—spread it on or sample some straight from the spoon (we promise we won’t judge!).
To eat the honeycomb, use a knife to spread a small section on hot toast, biscuits or pancakes. Or, try topping a cracker with cheese (cheddar or brie are recommended) and a small hunk of comb.

Substituting Honey for Sugar
For amounts 1 cup or less, use equal amounts of honey for sugar. Over one cup, replace each cup of sugar with 2/3 to 3/4 cup honey.
Lower the baking temperature 25 degrees and watch your time carefully because products with honey brown faster.
In recipes using more than one cup honey for sugar, it may be necessary to reduce liquids by 1/4 cup per cup of honey.
In baked goods, if not already in the recipe, add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda. This reduces the acidity of the honey and increases the volume of your product.
No refrigeration is required. If crystallization occurs place container in a pan of warm water to remove crystals without compromising rawness.
Milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, crustacean shellfish, fish, soy, gluten, titanium dioxide.
