Refrigerating honey--why?

Low Country Jon | | May 20, 2007 08:40 PM

I just bought some sourwood honey from a local produce stand. They don't keep their own bees, but they package local honey under their own name with their own label. On that label I noticed the instructions "refrigerate after opening." What on earth? Can anyone think of a good reason to do this? Everything I know about honey leads me to believe it should be stored at room temperature and never refrigerated unless you purposely want to speed the crystalization process. Any ideas?
