Make Creamed Honey Our Recipe

Making creamed honey at home is a straightforward process that involves controlling the crystallization of honey to create a smooth, spreadable consistency. Here's a basic recipe to make creamed honey:


  • 2 cups of honey (raw and unfiltered honey works best)
  • 1/4 cup of creamed honey (store-bought or homemade) as a starter culture (optional)
  • Clean, dry jars with lids


  1. Start by ensuring that your jars and utensils are clean and completely dry, as any moisture can affect the crystallization process.
  2. Pour the honey into a mixing bowl. If you're using a starter culture, add 1/4 cup of creamed honey to the bowl and mix well to evenly distribute it throughout the honey. The creamed honey acts as a seed to encourage the formation of small crystals.
  3. Once mixed, cover the bowl with a clean cloth or plastic wrap and let it sit at room temperature for 1-2 weeks. During this time, the honey will begin to crystallize, resulting in a creamy texture.
  4. Stir the honey occasionally during the crystallization process to distribute the crystals evenly and prevent large crystals from forming. You can use a clean spoon or spatula for stirring.
  5. After 1-2 weeks, check the consistency of the honey. It should have a smooth, creamy texture similar to soft butter. If necessary, continue to let it sit at room temperature until desired consistency is reached.
  6. Once the honey has reached the desired consistency, transfer it to clean, dry jars with tight-fitting lids. Label the jars with the date and store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
  7. Enjoy your homemade creamed honey spread on toast, drizzled over yogurt or oatmeal, or used as a sweetener in your favorite recipes.

Keep in mind that the crystallization process may vary depending on factors such as the type of honey used and environmental conditions. Experiment with different honey varieties and techniques to find the perfect creamy consistency that suits your taste preferences. I used cinnamon and almonds in my last batch to add to our spring honey this year.
