Re: Crystallized honey
Keep in mind - the crystallized honey is great winter feed (works exactly the same as dry sugar - only better).

In fact, the thicker the honey, the better winter feed it is - because it hold its shape better (you make patties out of it and apply as if MC).
Not thick enough honey requires a thin plastic bag to hold it together.
I would drop all the busy work plans and the headaches.
Just keep that honey at a standby for winter feeding.
Better yet - the crystallized honey keeps indefinitely.
Bonus - all the cappings will stay behind clean and dry, after the bees ate the honey away.
