Does Honey go bad?

Happily, the answer is No! Even the honey from the ancient Egyptian tombs was still edible. Honey can ferment if it is too high in moisture, thus it is important for the beekeeper to let the bees 'dry out' the honey before harvesting. Fermented honey, though, has a strong odor and there is no doubt that something is wrong. If your honey crystalizes or separates this is normal. This honey can be consumed in the crystalized state (try stirring it all together to cream your own honey) or you can gently warm the honey in a pan of warm water to return the honey to its liquid state. Honey does not need refrigerated, but if you choose to do so it will crystalize more quickly. Love the Honey!
