When raw honey turns to sugar
Honey may crystallize after a few months of storage. This happens when the honey gets a grainy or sugar-like texture. Crystallized honey is safe to eat and has the same taste.
To make the honey liquid again, use a gentle heating technique:
1. Boil a pot of water and remove it from the heat.
2. Place the container of honey in the hot water. Do not allow the water to reach the top of the honey container to avoid contaminating it.
3. Remove the container of honey after a few minutes. If it is still solid or crystallized,repeat the process.
4. Do not microwave honey or put it directly in boiling water or on a hot stove top, as this may destroy some of its nutrients.
