How can you rejuvenate, crystallized and hard honey?
You can either put it in the microwave and heat it or put the jar in a pot of simmering water. This should dissolve the crystals and is should be a good as new! (09/21/2004)
Microwave until it is back to it's original state. Then let cool and replace cover, it should stay liquid for months. Honey is the only food that never spoils as long as nothing is added to it. It will keep forever and if it crystallizes again just microwave again. (09/21/2004)
Place the container of honey in your microwave and start zapping it @ high power for 15 second intervals, watching it very carefully. If not, once it reaches its high point it will boil over. Happy honeying. (09/21/2004)
Setting it in a sunny window works well too. (09/21/2004)

This worked perfectly for me. I've tried hot water and microwaves, but melted bottle both ways.
This time I put the bottle of honey in the dishwasher and the honey melted perfectly! (with no change to bottle shape) I just put it on top of the dishes (top tray) and ran on the normal setting. You can squeeze the bottle a little and close the lid before dish washing it, but I didn't think of that. (11/26/2010)
DO NOT MICROWAVE your honey! That kills all of the nutritious enzymes in it. Do not even boil water and place the jar in it. High heat is bad for honey. If it has crystalized, use a bowl of HOT TAP water and set the container in it, submerged above the top of the honey line, and shake the bottle and check the consistency from time to time. Honey should not be heated beyond a drinkable temperature.
