I have a 5 gallon bucket 1/2 full with very hardened honey. What is the best way to liquify this?

If you don't want to invest in something like this (5 gal. pail heater):



then you can wrap a couple of heating pads around the bucket then wrap that with a couple of blankets (for insulation) and let the heating pads work their magic. Always be careful however, of leaving electrical appliances on and unoccupied!

set the bucket on a heating pad set on high and cover the bucket with a towel, it will take a little while but keep a eye on it, I never tried this with a bucket but it works on jars..

Put it in the bathtub and fill with as hot a water as you have.  Add some pots of boiling water as it gets lukewarm.  If you keep it hot it will liquify.
