I had bought high fructose corn syrup in 5 gallon containers with 2.25" screw tops. I didn't use one last fall and it is now solid. Can I use it now--if so, how do I get it out of the container?

This may be a dumb question, but since it is a plastic 5 gal container what is the easiest way to heat it.

In a washtub or similar, in water. The water will protect the plastic. Let cool before removing from the water.

I have found for warming 5 gallon pail of honey crate heaters (the kind made for dogs crates) works quite well. it ain't real quick but mine is large enough to accept two 5 gallon pails. I cover the pails with blankets.

Why not cut the plastic jar in half and set on the top bars and let the bees clean it out?
