How to soften raw honey?
Okay, so I'm new to raw honey. I decided to buy a jar of local Maine raw honey to drizzle on Greek Yogurt. But much to my surprise, raw honey is nearly solid and not a soft liquid like the stuff I was used to. My questions is this: How do you "drizzle" something that is solid? Do I heat the entire jar? Do I just heat the portion I need? Thanks and please forgive the obvious newbie question.
Great question. THe best way to soften raw honey is to simply heat it on the stove gently. It will stay liquid for several weeks before re-hardening so you can just melt what you need for a few weeks at a time.
I try to avoid the use of the microwave for softening raw honey as it may kill some of the valuable enzymes in the honey.
