Our best friends have had a 2 gallon plastic bucket of honey in their garage in a dark, cool location for 35 years...the bucket is just half gone...it still hasn't crystallized, or decomposed in any way. It is a very dark color honey, and tastes wonderful!
Why in the world would honey stay so stable for so long?
Our friends like honey, but they forgot they had it until my husband was visiting, and the subject went to honey! My husband uses a pint of honey per week.
Our friend's 35 yr old was originally purchased in N. Dakota.
