It appears you’re curious as well.

It’s true. You could dig right into a pot of 1000 year old honey and enjoy it, without concern.

This durability is thanks to the unique features of honey; it is low in water and high in sugar, so bacteria cannot grow on it. Honey also contains small amounts of hydrogen peroxide, which inhibits growth of microbes. This is partly why bees produce it for the young in their hives – it is both food and protection.

The trick is to leave the lid on though! An unsealed jar of honey can spoil like any other food.
