Ripe honey will last a long time. Unpasteurized unripe honey can spoil.

Yes, honey is the only food that never spoils.

Yes. Honey is the only "natural" substance that never goes bad.

yes, honey never goes bad.
honey is a multipurpose item. it can be used for food, skincare, etc.

In theory, yes. They've found honey in Egyptian tombs that was still edible.

As for health benefits, some people say that if you eat honey produced from local bees and local flowers, it can help provide some immunity to hayfever.

Due to its unique composition and the complex processing of nectar by the bees which changes its chemical properties, honey is suitable for long term preservation and is easily assimilated even after long conservation. History knows examples of honey preservation for decades, and even centuries. "...small residues of edible honey have even been found in the pharaoh's tombs...So u can imagine how long-lasting is this chemical...

For at least 2700 years, honey has been used to treat a variety of ailments through topical application, but only recently have the antiseptic and antibacterial properties of honey been chemically explained.

Thats why people called their loved ones as 'Honey' and not 'Sugar'

it will store forever but in this house it is gone too fast..

you can also preserve hot chili peppers in it
(little bit of sweet in a habanero and a little bit of spice in the honey)
and it is the only food in the world that does not kill life to harvest!
worlds most perfect food.

Yes. Honey is amazing, I love it! =)

That is not true! I found rotten honey in my pantry... it crystalized and smelled terribly.

Honey is the only food that will never ever ever spoil it will never grow mold or go sour or tast any diffrently then the day you bought it. It might be a little harder from drying out but in that case you just pop it in the microwave for a few seconds and wala new honey.

it will crystalize but it still will be edible
