Why does honey granulate?
When honey crystallizes or granulates, the simple explanation is that the two sugars (glucose and fructose) separate. This occurs in all honey. Different honeys granulate at different time, i.e. Tupelo honey can sit for years without granulation because of its high fructose content. When granulation occurs, simply place in a pan of hot water for a period of time. Do not microwave.
