how to fix crystallized honey (chunky)

WP_20140629_004

Got that little bear of honey but it is all chunky and won’t come out?  Just place it in a mason jar and fill with hot water (tap or boiling can work) and loosely add a lid to keep some of the heat in.  Check on it in a few minutes and you should have nicely flowing honey again.  Still a little chunky?  Repeat the process again.

This happens because well honey is sugar and as time goes on small crystals can form and then grow making this chunky mess…this is the same process you would do to intentionally make some sugar crystals like below.

By heating the sugar up you dissolve these crystals making nice looking honey again which pretty much has a shelf life of forever.
