Raw Honey Date Squares
I stumbled on this recipe of Honey Dates Square, a historic recipe from the 1940’s, the era when sugar was scarce and use of honey and maple syrup was the only thing used in bakes.
This recipe is oil free and butter free. A perfect tea time cake which can be made in 30 minutes
Why does raw honey crystallise? Is it gone bad?
Raw honey is pure natural honey that hasn't been processed or heat treated. Crystallisation is a natural process and it doesn't change the quality of the honey and it is perfectly fine to eat. By simple chemistry, honey is an overly saturated liquid of natural sugars produced by the honey bee from the sweet nectar of flowers.
