Honey question
I bought some local honey at an Apple orchard in September. I forgot about it till recently. Now itís hard... not just crystallized, but downright solid. Can I save it somehow? It wasnít cheap!

Hot water
You can put the closed honey container in a bowl or pot of hot water. That should soften it up.

I bet itís delicious!

Good quality honey never is! I usually get mine from Thrive Market. Those prices are the best I've seen for good quality honey.

Yes, local honey is the best! Like the PP said, you can just immerse the jar in a pot of hot water and it will reliquify.

I am fortunate to know three beekeepers within a mile of my I get truly local honey! Their bees are probably in my gardens. I wonít even buy from the next town over...I am a local honey snob.

Awesome, I will try that. Thanks everyone! :)

My husband is a beekeeper. Put the jar in a crockpot of water on low for a couple of hours. Do not microwave as this destroys the good properties.

Sunny spot
If you have one, the sun's heat will fix it.

Wow, this is all really helpful! Never would have thought of the crock pot or the sun. If the sun ever comes out ;). And I never knew that it never expires!

The trick
Is to never contaminate your honey. Always use a clean utensil. Also buy small containers. It's a miracle food in many ways. Helps allergies, many benefits.
