Does Honey Go Bad?
If honey crystallizes, does that mean it’s bad? Absolutely not. Honey crystallizes for a few reasons:
Crystallized honey is still good. Some people even prefer it to liquid honey but in reality it’s all a matter of preference. To re-liquefy honey, simply place the jar in a pot of water on the stove. Turn the heat to low and let it sit there for a little bit. It will re-liquefy and is as good as new. Do not put it in the microwave and I would strongly encourage you not to put a plastic jar in a pot of water as it will melt (yes, I’ve done that).
Also, if you heat honey at a high heat you will kill the enzymes that make the raw honey so nutritious for your body.
Here are a few suggestions to keep your honey from crystallizing:
