I happen to love honey. Who doesn’t? I put it in my tea every day, in my plain Greek yogurt, and in lots of recipes. But, honey has so many other uses and benefits that you may not know about. Everyone loves honey.

My personal perplexion-(I think I made that word up. Spellcheck didn’t like it) was, I was perplexed about how to get my honey out of the plastic jar once it started crystallizing. You aren’t supposed to microwave or boil plastic containers, so now what? Why do they put it in plastic?

I decided that a pre-emotive strike was the best strategy. One day, I looked at my plastic honey container and it was just barely starting to crystallize. Oh no! I was going to transfer it when I first bought it, and I forgot. So, I got out a glass canning jar and squeezed out as much honey into the glass jar as I could. There was a little left, clinging to the sides, so I put the plastic container in a container of warm water…not hot or boiling…just warm. Then, I scooped out as much as I could with a tall iced tea spoon. I pretty much got it all out, and now I can use a spoon in the wide mouth jar to get out my honey when it thickens. Honey lasts forever, Well, almost.

While excavating Egypt’s famous pyramids, archaeologists have found pots of honey in an ancient tomb. The honey, dating back approximately 3,000 years, is the world’s oldest sample – and still perfectly edible.Nov 23, 2015

Don’t microwave raw honey to decrystallize it. … You may be tempted to immerse your entire honey jar in boiling water, but that will destroy beneficial enzymes and other properties found only in raw honey. Don’t heat honey in a plastic bottle. Don’t take the risk that you‘ll melt plastic into your honey.Jan 19, 2018
