-Use dried ingredients (not fresh) to flavor the honey to prevent possible contamination. However, fresh ingredients (such as fresh ginger vs crystalized) will lend a stronger flavor. If using fresh, use the honey within 1 month or store in the fridge.
-A 6 quart pot can fit up to 5 half pint size mason jars at a time
-If making multiple flavors in a single batch, consider strong smells that may cross over into the other bottles (for example, don’t infuse a garlic honey next to a vanilla honey)
-Pour the honey through a strainer when it’s still warm for easier straining
-Serve several choices of honey on a fancy platter with a mix of meat, cheese, and bread
-Don’t use expensive raw honey for this, you don’t want to be exposing that precious gold to such high temperatures.
