    Default creamed honey, again

    does honey need to be held at 57 degrees to cream properly, or does that just speed the process? i have a spare fridge that i thought would be ideal for holding the honey while it crystallizes, but i can't get the thing to reach a temp above 48. lousy good craftsmanship. in any case, if i just seed the honey and let it sit at room temp, will it still crystallize properly?

    My understanding is that the rapid crystallization helps with uniformity of crystal size. But it'll sure crystallize at whatever temp if it's not too warm. Try a couple in the fridge and a couple at room temp and see what you like better. If you want to, you can get a controller to override the setpoint of a fridge/freezer to the temp you choose for about $60, no modification of fridge needed. I have three .
