    Thanks for this thread. I found this very thing today in two dead out hives. I was scared I had a diease and almost burnt my two hives. I think I will wait and see more answers now.

    Yup...As long as it didn't come from sugar syrup, but from actual nectar. That said...good luck spinning it out to sell it.

    I was actually making a spoof of "crystal meth". I have never experienced crystalized honey until now, but have read enough about it to know there aint no extracting it!!

    I see it a lot, our late rabbitbrush flow is a strong crystallizer and I've assumed it's crystallized honey. It'll get cleaned up.
