Tools

  • Saucepan

Supplies
 

  • 1 jar honey in glass jar
  • 2 pints water

Instructions
 

  • Place your honey in a heat safe container (glass jar) or ceramic crock.
    You don’t have to add the loosely attached lid but I like to in order to protect the honey from water splashes.

  • Heat several inches of water in a pot on the stove until it is almost boiling (but not quite) – then remove from heat.

  • Slowly lower the jar of honey for decrystallizing in the hot water bath. Leave the jar sitting in the hot water bath until the water cools.
    Another option: place the honey jar in another pan and slowly pour in the warm water. You will have to repeat this process several times. Slow and steady.
