Just nuke it if it gets crystallized.

Yes, but how many times can you do that? I mean, eventually, the flavor or something has got to be affected. . .

Nah it should be fine. Or just put it in a pot of warm water to melt it. Nothing is wrong with crystallized honey.

Not if it's in a plastic bottle, though. Use a pot of warm water if that's the case.

But nuking does work, and you can do it an infinite number of times. Doesn't seem to affect the quality of the honey.

Oh yeah that's true, I usually just scoop out what I'm going to use and put it in a little glass bowl and nuke it.

good to know. I have had this happen, and always thought it would wreck the honey.

I always place the container of honey in warm water to dissolve crystals that form. If you microwave the honey you risk altering the flavor and nutrients in the honey as high temperatures drive-off the volatiles that define the subtle flavor.

We get local honey on bulk buckets, so it's almost always crystallized (or frozen) after the first month or so. We just scoop or cut out what we're going to use for a few days, put it in a glass bowl or jar, and then set that in a bowl/pan of water and warm it up until the crystals dissolve.
