    I need help with my chunk honey. For some reason, this summer my chunk honey started granulating rather quickly. I have been selling to a local market for a couple of years, and haven't had this problem until recently. Does anyone have any tips or ideas on preparing chunk honey without it granulating so quickly?

    Thanks.

    Granulation is a problem I have with our cotton honey. When I put comb it is it will still crystalize. I have an old refrigerator that I put a heater in and control the temp to around 100F. This will slowly melt the granulated honey and not damage the comb.

    For long term storage you can freeze honey (chunk, comb, etc.) It doesn't crystalize at all that way.

    Another good tip, thanks tarheit. I do keep my comb honey frozen until I need it.
