Has your honey ever done this? I recently bought a large container of pure honey (Vermont, baby) and after a small vacation I came home to this sludge. I can still mix it and such but being the honey lover I am---I enjoy just a spoonful every now and then. What can I do to bring it back?! Thank you!

Hmm, I have heard that if you put it in a container and put that in a pot of hot water and let it slowly heat for maybe ten minutes, then that might melt it. Also, if you microwave it for ten seconds at a time (longer and you could scorch it) until it starts melting, then that could do it?
Good luck!

naturally honey cristallizes after a while, i can't remember how they treat it, i think cheaper honey even have something added so it doesn't do that. so the fact it's cristallizing says something about it's quality... but you can truely dissolve the crystals again by heating, though i've never tried microwave.

Thanks!! I'm so used to pure comb honey from my grandpa's apiary (and multiple roommates) so that good stuff rarely lasts long enough to crystallize.

I've done both the microwave and the boiling water bath method - both work fine. And if/when it crystallizes again, it can be heated again (and again and again and again and...) to dissolve the crystals. I've done that many times, no problem.

With microwave, I personally don't do it on high. I'll do it on a medium or low setting just so the honey doesn't heat up too much or too fast.
