FOOD STORAGE — HOW LONG CAN YOU KEEP...

HONEY, PURE, LIQUID, COMMERCIALLY BOTTLED — UNOPENED OR OPENED

Pantry Refrigerator
Blue Arrow Green Arrow Keeps indefinitely
Tips
  • Store in cool, dry area and keep tightly covered.
  • Honey's color or flavor may change gradually, but it will remain safe to consume indefinitely if it has been stored properly.
  • Over time, the honey may become cloudy and crystallize — this is not harmful; the honey will still be safe to consume if it has been stored properly.
  • If honey crystallizes, place the honey jar in warm water and stir until the crystals dissolve.
  • Refrigeration is not recommended, as it accelerates the crystallization process.
  • After prolonged storage, honey may darken in color and lose some of its flavor.
