We bought a jar of raspberries preserved in honey on a recent trip to New York. They're absolutely beautiful, and although we haven't opened the jar yet, it promises to be fabulously delicious. The only ingredients are honey and raspberries, and the raspberries are whole and look as if they haven't been heated at all. Is it safe to preserve fruits in honey? If so, would you just cover the fruit in honey? My intuition is telling me that it can't be that easy, but I haven't been able to find any information on this subject in my usual sources.
