Melting Honey

I have a bucket of honey drippings from the wax when I harvested honey a month ago. The honey crystalized in the bucket. My wife got the idea to use the heat from the wood stove to warm up the honey to strain it. She created a double using a large pot, that the bucket would fit in. She put some water in the pot, put in on the stove and a little bit later we have some nice golden honey.
My wife's homemade double boiler.

The crystalized honey, with Steve the stink bug, and Betsy the bee in it.

Starting to melt!

Poring the honey threw some cheese cloth!

The finished product!
