I know you can freeze honeycomb, but does it have to be? How long can it sit on the counter and still be good?
This information comes from the National Food Safety Database http://www.foodsafety.ufl.edu/consumer.htm Honey is available in three forms -- comb honey (the honey still in the comb); chunk-honey (pieces of the honeycomb in the jar); and liquid honey (honey that has been extracted from the comb). Comb honey and chunk-honey can be stored in a cool, dry place for about six months; liquid honey can be stored for about one year. When refrigerated, honey crystallizes (some of the sugars separate from the liquid). To reliquify, microwave at 100% power for 30 seconds OR put in a pan of hot water over low heat for 10 to 15 minutes.
