It dissolves the crystals. If you do an internet search for "crystallized honey," you should be able to find information about it.

The sugar crystals in the honey melt, like with any sugar syrup (including maple syrup).

The only honey that WON'T get crystals in it, is the honey that has been processed to death.

Don't use the microwave to heat honey, it will melt any plastic container before the honey melts.

Put the container in a small saucepan with water and let it simmer slowly. Make sure it has water as high as the honey level, if possible. It takes a long time, so watch the water level.

Yes, it is smoother because it melts the crystals.

I must mention that 'raw honey does indeed crystallize' (the darker the raw honey the faster it does it) and both light and dark does so much more quickly than processed (heated) honey and especially if stored in the refrigerator.

All 'raw' means is that it hasn't been heated. Packers heat honey to retard the granulation and remove yeast and bacteria spores.
