    Default Do not attempt to microwave de-granulate plastic containers.

    This is for Charlie B who asked me last week how to de-granulate honey in labled plastic containers. The good friend that I am, I experimented and came to this conclusion: If you try, do it in steps, not all at once, or you will melt your container.

    Thanks for trying Olly! I guess it will be a hot water soak right before they get labeled and sold.

    If the jar is already labeled, we place ours in a zip-loc before the bath. You can use larger bags if you soak more than one jar at a time and they are reusable as long as the bottom of the 'soaker' is not so hot that it melts the bag.
