Hello, out of four 100%-capped deep frames, which I removed from the hive about a month ago, one frame turned out to be completely crystallized on both sides and another had a large crystallized patch in the middle on one side. The rest extracted well. All are with plastic foundation.
Is there a way to save the crystallized honey? Would the bees would eat it, even if there's enough blooming plants around now? I suspect some of the other six frames that are still in the hive might also be crystallized.
I guess the only thing to do now is to dissolve the crystallized honey and then feed the syrup back to the bees. And then give them the frames, one after another, for cleaning.
Thanks and best wishes, h.
