How can I remove crystals from a honey comb?

Rating: 100

Reheat the honey in a double boiler and pack in a sterilized jar. The water activity of the honey is quite low so should not support the growth of harmful bacteria. Therefore, the honey could be stored at room temperature. It can also be refrigerated, but it will be more prone to recrystallizing. If it does, simply repeat the above procedure.
