100% raw honey is a kitchen staple that is highly versatile and lasts and lasts. How long does real honey last before it spoils? Honey found in the tombs of the Egyptian pharaohs was still edible when discovered centuries later. So, it’s always ready to use whenever you want to sweeten up a new recipe or an old family favorite.
