The Magic Honey as seen in the book
Princess Zelda can only obtain the Magic Honey from Conly the beekeeper if she offers him a flask full of Fairy Flower Sap. After Conly receives the flower sap, he will allow her to enter his hut and retrieve as much Magic Honey as she desires as well as take some of his Magic Bees.
Once Zelda reaches the room where Link is imprisoned, she must pour the magic honey into the holes that appear on top of the Crystal after the Handprint has been placed. This will cause for the honey to steam and bubble, which is where the princess must use the Magnifying Glass and hold it above the honey, thus breaking the crystal open.
- "Zelda takes the flask out of her pouch, uncorks it and waves it gently under the beekeeper's nose. He grabs for it, but she snatches it away. 'Not so fast,' she says. 'Let's trade.'" (The Crystal Trap (Archway) pg. 70)
- "The little man eyes the flask hungrily. 'What do yer want?' he asks. 'Honey? Take whatever you need.' And he waves to a row of honey pots along one wall." (The Crystal Trap (Archway) pg. 56)
- "Crack! A dozen small holes appear in the top of the crystal right under the beam of light. 'Look at that,' Zelda whispers. 'It looks like a honeycomb. The honey!' Quickly she pours the magic honey into the holes. The thick brown liquid begins to steam and bubble." (The Crystal Trap (Archway) pg. 75)
- "'Heat!' Zelda cries. She takes the magnifying glass and holds it in the light above the honey. Under the heat of the magnified sunglight, the crystal begins to turn colors--first blue, then gold, then red. Bbrr-r-room! With a terrific crash, the crystal splits open!" (The Crystal Trap (Archway) pg. 75)
