I have several containers of honey - after time they seem to crystalize and get hard. I understand not to 'boil' but to warm in very warm water until it turns liquified. BUT after that it seems to crystalize very easily and quickly. Am I not warming it for long enough? Any help would be appreciated.
Honey naturally crystallizes with time. To liquefy, I heat up a pan of water to boiling, then I turn off the heat. I stick the jar of honey into the water and let it sit until it liquefies. I've had great success with this, but my honey is within a year old. You are doing it right; your honey may be older, though, and so it goes back into the crystalline state easier.
Hope this helps,
