Raw honey is naturally thicker at room temperature. This is a natural preservation quality of the honey that makes it last for a really long time. Honey has been found entombed in the pyramids and was still good to eat after 5000 years! Here is how to melt raw honey

Here’s how to do it without degrading the natural benefits of the raw honey:

  • Bring a deep pot of water to a boil — use one like this
  • You will need to use a deep pot so when you place the jar inside the water comes up high on the jar
  • Remove pot from heat source after the water is boiling
  • Place jar of honey into water and let it sit in the pot, uncovered so pressure doesn’t build up
  • Stir as the honey softens

          Actually the best way to use honey is to not eat it. Don’t be a tard, Bruce. Lest you get diabetes from eating nature’s version of cane sugar.

            Not very nice and ill-informed comment. While moderation s/b practiced in all things including honey you';re not likely to get diabetes from honey consumption but rather refined sugars .

            “Raw honey is actually kind of a cool mystery in how it breaks down in the body. It is directly converted to liver glycogen and doesn’t raise blood sugar levels like sucrose or high fructose corn syrup does even though it contains the same simple sugars. This fact alone should be reason enough to recommend it over synthetic sweeteners such as Aspartame.

            When consumed regularly over weeks or months, raw honey will actually LOWER and help balance a person’s blood sugar and HbA1c (glycosylated or glycated hemoglobin) levels. Research has shown that human consumption of raw honey will result in lower blood sugar levels by as much as 60 to 100 mg/dl at 60 and 90 minutes following consumption compared to a similar amount of sucrose. Due to this, there should be no big surprise that HbA1c levels will be lowered by as much as 2-4%. This factor alone should trigger huge variances in the treatment guidelines recommended by most docs, which means fewer drugs. Actually the worse a person’s glucose intolerance is, the greater the positive impact and control on blood sugar levels from ingesting raw honey.”

            Read what Sonia said. I can tell you don’t know much about honey. Every heard of Manuka Honey? It’s medicinal and when used in the right amounts, It’s anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory it can actually remove certain ulcers.

    How about when adding to a recipe? I make a granola bar (no bake) by melting coconut cream, a but btter and such in a double boiler. I wait until last to add my raw honey and turn the flame off first. Does that sound like it would preserve the vitamins and such?
