Day 299: Melting down honey

Has your honey ever gotten really crusty and gross? Usually I'll just stick mine in a pot on the stove all day. However, that doesn't seem very safe if I leave to go somewhere or with my 17 month old who likes to climb up on the oven and see what's on the stove. So I just put some water in my 6 quart slow cooker, placed the honey without the lid in the water and turned it on low all day. It melted it down perfectly and then I poured it into our honey bear and it's ready to go!

  1. What a great idea! I hadn't thought of that -- I usually use the stove method, too, but I bet this uses less electricity. Thanks!

  2. How clever. My crystallized honey is in plastic bottles. Do you think it would still work?

  3. I know this is a slow cooker blog, but I put mine on my candle warmer. It fit perfectly and melted very nice.

  4. I take the lid off and microwave for 30 secs - works every time. Unless you don't have a microwave...

  6. Here in southern Arizona, it's easier and more energy-efficient just to set a (glass) honey jar in the sun for a few hours.
