TikTok Made Me Try It: Creamed Honey

I have an obsession with honey; I'll purchase it every chance I get, especially if it's local. The problem with buying that much honey is that it does, eventually, crystallize before I use it all.

In the past, I simply re-liquefied it using a pan of hot water, but, the other day, I saw a TikTok video that demonstrated the technique for turning crystallized honey into creamed (or, spun) honey and I was intrigued. I love creamed honey and have also been known to purchase it (like, a lot). Honey is expensive and creamed honey is extra pricey, so I figured, what the hell? I have several jars of crystallized honey, why not give it a go?

So, I did.

The process is ridiculously simple. Gather your honey... 

Pour, scrape, and spoon it into your mixer bowl...

...and whip the shit out of it for 20-30 minutes. Let rest for 2-3 hours and do it again. Then, let it rest for another 2-3 hours and whip it for another 15-20 minutes. When it is done, the color will have lightened and the honey will have thickened.

Immediately transfer into jars, as the honey will continue to thicken as it cools.

That's it! It couldn't be more simple. Or, more delicious.

Say what you will about TikTok, but I have learned quite a few new skills thanks to the creators on the app. Not any new dance moves, mind you; I draw the line at dance moves.

  1. I have never heard of creamed honey but that sounds delicious and easy enough to make; even if it a bit time consuming waiting in between each cycle.
