It is very difficult to keep honey from crystalizing in the winter because the cold speeds up crystallization. The good news is that when it crystallizes it does not effect the quality of the honey. If your honey crystallizes, you can easily re-liquify it by gently heating the jar in a pan of hot water, stirring while heating. Do not overheat as heat may alter flavor and color as a result of carmelization of the sugars.
Pure honey will often crystalize and that's ok. Run the bottle or jar under the hot tap for a few moments or nuke it on a low setting until it has just melted enough.
