    Recently, I was giving a gift of home jarred honey by someone who doesn't speak any language I do.

    My question is do I have to do anything to the honey before I eat it? It jarred in a mason jar, and the seal hasn't been broken.

    You shouldn't have to. My parent's use to have a bee hive when I was growing up and we jarred our own honey, which consisted of taking honeycomb and crushing it with a press and letting the honey drip into a jar to be sealed.

    So pasteurization is not necessary? Interesting! I googled on that and read about it... interesting! Now I learned something for the day! :)
