Can you still eat crystallized honey and how can crystallized honey be liquified? We have the answers right here.

The time it takes honey to crystallize depends on its composition. Honeys with a larger amount of fructose stay in a liquid state longer (ex: acacia honey). Likewise, if the glucose level is higher it will crystallize faster (rapeseed honey). Despite this, the crystalization of the honey by no means lessens the quality of the product.

Crystallized honey can be liquified by placing it in a warm water bath that does not exceed 40C.
