I am having difficult storing honey without it crystalizing. Any tips? Thanks!

Paula, Great question! Please read the article found here http://www.honey.com/downloads/crystallization.pdf
Here’s a tip I found:
To prevent the crystallization, freeze your honey…yes, really! Pour honey into an ice cube tray, cover tightly with plastic wrap and freeze. The honey will not completely freeze but will become very thick. The plastic wrap prevents other freezer odors from seeping into the honey, and will keep your freezer clean should the tray tip. Each cube holds approximately one tablespoon. Remove enough tablespoons to reach the needed amount and place directly into your recipe. Allow to come to room temperature for easier stirring.
Otherwise once your Honey has crystallized you can heat it to the specifications mentioned in the article provided above.
Hope that helps!
