How to Quickly Crystalize Honey

When honey transforms from a gooey, liquid state to a more solid one, it becomes crystallised. Some people prefer this natural sweetener in its crystal state since the flavour becomes more intense. When honey contains a high percentage of pollen, the liquid will get hard faster. Large containers of honey and honey that has been stored for a long period of time will naturally crystallise. If you prefer honey that's hardened, you can quickly crystallise your sweetener with this quick, safe method.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Buy natural honey that has not been processed. Processed honey has very little pollen content.

  2. 2

    Remove the lid of the honey and place it in your refrigerator. Adjust the refrigerator's temperature to below 15 degrees Celsius.

  3. 3

    Monitor the crystallisation daily by looking at the top and bottom of the honey for crystal build up.
