Creamed Honey is delicious to the taste. It can be more usable for spreads on toast, bagels, and sandwiches. It is ‘thicker’ and thus it does not run like your liquid honey does. It can be used for muffins and cornbread to give it that powerful sweet punch. And yes, it can still be used for baking and cooking. It is an excellent way for storing honey as it does not go back to being ‘gritty’. Keep it at 65oF or less and it will stay like that indefinitely.
Honey should not be given to infants under the age of 18 months (to be on the safer side, though some doctors would say 12 months). This is because some honey contains low count of naturally occurring bacterial botulinum spores, which bees collect together with the nectar. These spores cannot be removed during honey processing and cannot be detected by consumers. A baby’s immature digestive system is not yet acidic enough to inhibit the toxin from being produced, whereas the digestive system of an older baby and adults is. Hence, there is a potential for these organism to thrive and grow in the intestines of young infant’s intestines and produce toxin, possibly causing a serious form of food poisoning known as infant botulism.
Creamed honey and whipped honey are the same thing. It is usually quite light in color, and when made properly, is quite creamy in texture. Its contents are the same as regular liquid honey; it is just a different form. The creaminess is just a very fine granulation. Some people prefer to use the creamed or even a more solid version of honey in their cooking/baking or for general consumption.
