Rating

It is one of the only things that never expires. if it separates just warm it up. You may leave it in the jar and warm it up in a deep pan with water, just be careful not to get water into the honey.

Honey does not expire because the high sugar content kills most bacteria. It may crystalize over time, but by adding a little distilled water and heating it, it will become edible again.

Liquid honey does not expire. The sugar content is so high that it kills almost all bacteria and the moisture content is too low to allow fungus to grow. It can crystallize and become solid and chunky, but you can add 1% distilled water and heat it and it will become edible again. However, it can still be dangerous for infants to eat. Honey can actually be a preservative, and scientists found honey in pyramids in Egypt and were amazed because it didn't expire, even after thousands of years.
