Myth: The honey I bought for a recipe six months ago has crystals on it, so now I have to throw it away.

jar of honey
Answer: Busted!

Actually, you can still use the honey. Simply place the jar of honey in a warm container of water and stir until crystals dissolve. Or, you can microwave 1 cup of honey in a microwave-safe container, stirring every 30 seconds, until crystals dissolve, but be careful not to boil or scorch the honey.
