I almost used "hard honey" for the subject line but thought better of it. :)
I have several bottles of honey (mesquite, clover, etc.) that have all solidified (one has sort of separated). Also, they all are in small-necked bottles so getting the honey out is becoming quite challenging (involves several implements and lots of hacking). Is there someway to soften the honey so it will "liquify" again? I hate to throw them all out, but they're just not usable at this point. Thoughts?
