    Default Does "melted" honey crystallize again?

    One beekeeper told me that once honey crystallizes, if you liquefy it, then it will not crystallize again. Is that true? Does honey only crystallize once?

    The hotter you get it, tbe longer it will take, but it will eventually set up again.

    I put the crystalized honey containers in my car in the parking lot during the day and it turns the honey back to liquid post-haste.

    I never heat honey above 120 degrees to keep in classified Raw honey. 115 degrees for 24 hours will re-liquefy a bottle completely. But the answer to your question is Yes it will eventually crystallize again. But then is just makes it easier to spread on your toast.
