crystallized honey?

Allie D'Augustine | Nov 9, 2002 10:52 AM

So, I decided to have tea this morning instead of coffee: mistake.

I've had my squeeze bottle of Trader Joe's honey sitting in my cabinet for a while, apparently, and when I tried to squeeze some in my tea nothing came out. It was crystallized in a lump. And, of course, the neck of the bottle is too small to get a spoon in, and I'm out of chopsticks. I wouldn't settle for sugar for my tea. :)

I was wary of putting the whole thing in the microwave -- I know sugar can get very hot, very quickly. I ran the bottle under hot water and managed to scrape out a chunk of crystallized honey to melt into my tea. What I'm wondering is: is there any way to fix the honey so that it goes back to its original state? I know it hastn't spoiled; it smells and tastes fine. Should I give up and get new honey?
