When Honey Turns to Sugar

What to Do When Honey Turns to Sugar?

If you have some crystallized honey and you don’t want to eat the honey solid, then you can turn it to its liquid texture. There is an easy way to turn crystallized honey back to its pure liquid form. All you need to do is set it in a bowl with hot water.

An easy, but careful method to turn your honey into liquid form is first to heat up some water in a pot or the microwave. When it begins to simmer, turn the heat off, and pour hot water into a bowl. After that, put your honey jar inside the bowl full of hot water and give it a couple of minutes until the crystals begin to revert. After a couple of minutes, you’ll begin to see the crystallized honey turn back to its liquid texture.

In this first method, it sounds easy to do, but it could turn out wrong if you don’t know how warm to heat your honey. Some of the content inside of the honey can be destroyed if overheated. As a result, the enzymes in your honey could be destroyed.

There are other methods to de-crystallize your honey.

  1. If you have a yogurt maker in your house, you can put your crystallized honey inside and set the temperature to 112 Fahrenheit (44 Celsius).
  2. I know it’s hard to find in every house, but if you do have a Sous Vide cooker, it’s the best thing to use for crystallized honey. You can put the honey jar inside the Sous Vide cooker and set the temperature to 110 Fahrenheit, (43 Celsius). After a few hours, you’ll see your honey get de-crystallized without any harmful results from heating.

Now you can enjoy your fully fluid honey!

“The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever: the judgments of the LORD are true and righteous altogether. More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.” Psalm 19:9-10
