Melting Raw Honey, to keep the benefits

Raw honey has amazing properties for wellness. It is a powerful healing product, made by nature. However, raw honey can be a bit difficult to use- especially in its solid form.

Here is a quick guide to getting the honey to a liquid state, so it is a bit more ‘user friendly’ without destroying any of the wonderful benefits. Heating it in this way ensures the honey doesn’t reach a high temperature, all the while gently distributing the warmth to bring the honey from a solid to a liquid state.

Step 1: Bring a saucepan, half filled with water to the boil

Step 2: Remove saucepan from the stove, and leave to cool for 3-5 minutes

Step 3: Remove the lid from the jar of honey, and place it in the saucepan, so it is sitting in the water, but not getting any water into the honey

Step 4: Leave the jar sitting in the hot water for about 10 minutes, stirring every now and then to distribute the heat.

Step 5: Remove the jar from the water, and let it cool on a bench, place it on a coaster/wooden chopping board if your bench is prone to marks. Keep stirring every few minutes until it has reached room temperature.

The honey should now be liquefied, and gone from a light, solid colour, to a more rich amber, liquid. Enjoy your lovely raw honey!
