  • Is there a way to soften old honey?
    I have a 10oz bottle of honey that is quite old. It's hard and a bit crystalized. I know that honey don't spoil, so I wondered if there was a way to get it in usuable condition again? Or, is it better to just toss it?

    Thanks for any ideas!

    Microwave it until its soft. I do this all the time.

    I microwave mine as well. It doesn't take long, so go on the side of caution and watch it closely.

    If I'm not in a hurry, I set it in a pan of hot water. If I am in a hurry, I do like the other posters, take the lid off and put it in the microwave.

    You need to watch some containers in the microwave. Plastic will shrink up and get distorted from the heat. You might loose some ot the honey if that happens.

    We are talking a few seconds in the microwave...not very long!

    You are correct, honey is the only natural food that does not spoil. I would recommend taking your time, put it into a pan of hot water and heat slowly on simmer. I have even put a folded cloth in the bottom of the pan if the honey is in a plastic jar. Always have had good luck.
