I buy the plastic squeeze bottles of honey at the grocery store and they always drip and leave a "honey ring" in my cabinet. So here's a great tip. Put the honey bottle right inside a mason jar or other jar that it will fit into. No more honey drips! The drips stay in the jar and with a lid on it, the bugs and ants aren't attracted to it!

A honey moat keeps the ants away from the honey jar! We eat very little sugar. We even use honey in our coffee in place of sugar. It's quite hard not to attract ants when you use honey as much as we do. Not liking honey that comes directly from the refrigerator, it dawned on me one day to place the jar of honey in a bowl of water.


Walla! It works great! Ants can't swim. If they try, they do the "back stroke" then sink to the bottom of the bowl. Most don't even try! Replace the water in the bowl often.

Placing the lid on the quart jar, then running warm soapy water over the jar also helps to keep the honey clean. We place our coffee cup up against the water bowl "moat" so any drizzle of honey that is dripping from the spoon will go into the moat as well.

Cold honey is harder to work with, not to mention the fact you use more as it ends up a heaping spoon full when used cold, directly from the quart jar. Honey is expensive so using it wisely helps offset the cost. Eat more honey. It's so good and good for you!

My family loves honey and I have had bottles turn to sugar because I did not store it correctly. To maintain quality, honey has to be stored properly - in a closed container, in a dry location and at room temperature, about 70 to 75 F. . .
