    I have several pounds of last year's honey, all crystallized.
    I'm wondering: is it better to re-liquify it every time it crystallizes, or to leave it solid and re-liquify only when I need it?

    Only when needed, if for no other reason, to save energy.

    If you are cooking with it just use as is, the heat will melt the crystals.

    Thanks! I wasn't sure if leaving it solid for a long time was detrimental to the honey in any way. Less chance of spills, too...
