Question Water Removal from Honey

Merry Christmas everybody!

I have a question that google has not provided me an answer with: how do you remove water from honey? I had a quart of honey that (long story) while decrystallizing it mixed with the water in the pot and now I have some very weak honey... How can I get the water out? Is there a temperature that I can boil it to so that I have the correct sugar concentration like making candy? This is good stuff and I don't want to lose a quart of it!

Thanks in advance to all!

Too much water in honey will cause it to ferment, so it may already be too late for your batch. Looking around the only method I see is part of the initial processing and includes the use of a vacuum pump to reduce air pressure and thus 'pull' the moisture out.
This is why it is imperative that all equipment used to process honey be bone dry.
