How Long Is Honey Non-Perishable
During archeological excavations scientists found honey as a grave good. It was reported that this honey was still eatable. Although there is no proof that one of the scientists tried it the honey did not show any sign that it was ruined.
Generally honey can spoil. If you want to prevent it you have to keep it dry, dark and cool. Honey is very photosensitive. When you do not keep it dark antibacterial ingredients will be destroyed. Until this happens months or even years have to pass by. Honey is also hygroscopic which means it extracts wetness from the air. This method is used to make the delicious mead.
