Hey there dill kids! Did you know honey nevvveeerrr gets old. You can store honey for years, OMG! let’s say thousands of years!! Ok we may not be around that long, but I think you get the point that honey does not expire like other foods. The oldest jar of honey ever found is believed to be 5,500 years old. WOW! How can this be you say? Well, honey is low in moisture, and the sugars in honey are hygroscopic, which means that they take in moisture from the air. When the heated and strained honey is sealed properly, moisture cannot be absorbed, and the honey stays the same forever.
