Hi BIndu,We are about to put pitted amlas in honey like you suggested, the only difference is we are making vine, but leaving amlas in the honey and preserve them for an year supply. And after every 15 days open the big jar and take out 15 days supply to consume and close the big jar . Can you tell me what is the maximum time that we preserved this way.


its good and tasty...also it improved stomach and digesion...
