Making honey crystallize
I like crystallized honey. As a food. But I'm having a hard time getting honey I buy at the store to crystallize.
I've heard that low temperature triggers crystallization. So I've put honey in the refrigerator, with a constant temperature in the mid-30, for a month or two. I've even put it in the freezer for a while, before transferring it to the fridge. Nothing happens. It remains liquid. Even after two months.
What am I doing wrong, and how do I get honey to crystallize?
You'll need to find honey that is high in crystals. This is determined often by the floral sources that the bees visited in creating the honey.
If the honey you have is low in crystals (which are often filtered out in liquid honey) you'll need to find another source.
Dutchman's Gold Raw Honey has a nice, natural creamy texture due to the crystal content.
