Having something special is what makes the holidays such a wonderful time. And with Don Victor Honey you can certainly prepare many special dishes and also use the beautiful jar for canning or give honey as gifts as part of those Christmas baskets you put together.
Don Victor Honey is raw, filtered honey, not processed in any other way. The honeycomb that comes inside the jar is perfectly edible you can pair with cheese for a gourmet experience, add to biscuits, eat as a treat and use on my recipe for Hibiscus Flowers in Honeycomb Syrup.
And you can find Don Victor Honey at Walmart in the Hispanic products aisle. Honey never goes bad you can store in your kitchen counter. If you see your honey is getting some crystallization this is the natural process it is not an indicator of spoilage, impurity, age or quality.
If your honey crystallizes, simply place the honey jar in warm water and stir until the crystals dissolve, or place the honey container into near boiling water that has been removed from the heat.
