As in crystallized Honey? 

Honey does it naturally over time...Different honey, take different lengths of time.  Temperature is also an issue, I think 57° is optimal for promoting crystallization.

This is basically all creamed honey is...You take honey and introduce some "seed starter" or creamed honey to set the wheels in motion, then that desired crystal size replicates throughout the batch.

If you google mamahealthy, on that site you can see the stuff I'm talking about.

Could you use the oven or a dehydrator to do it?
