How to Quickly Crystalize Honey

Updated February 21, 2017

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.

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

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

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