My honey has crystallized. What should I do?

Pure, unfiltered honeyAll good honey will crystallize (become solid), and unfiltered honey like ours will crystallize faster than the highly processed honey you see in supermarkets.

Crystallization is a completely natural process. It’s evidence that the honey has a high glucose-to-water ratio. (If there’s too much water in your honey, it will mold or ferment.)

Has your honey become solid? Just follow this advice from the National Honey Board:

If your honey crystallizes, simply place the honey jar in warm water and stir until the crystals dissolve; or place the honey container, with the cap open, into near boiling water that has been removed from the heat…until the crystals dissolve. Be careful not to boil or scorch the honey. Also keep in mind that you can eat the honey in a crystallized form. Just scoop out of the jar and spread it on your toast or drop it in your tea!

Please note: We don’t recommend microwaving your honey! Just warm it gently, and it will return to its beautiful liquid form.
