  • Question: Does Honey Go Bad?


    No, honey does not go bad. In fact, it's recognized as the only food that doesn't spoil.

    It will, however, crystallize (become thick and cloudy) over time. If this happens, just remove the lid from the jar; place it in a pan of water; and heat it over low heat until the honey returns to its original consistency.
