Fermented honey - what to do with it?

by Olga
(Toronto )

My mother purchases raw honey in buckets and gives it to us in smaller jars.
One of the jars she gave me was likely not cleaned properly because my honey tasted very fermented when I opened it. It's also been about 1.5–2 years since I've had it, so it could be that changes of temperature spoiled it.
Questions:
1) is it safe to eat fermented honey (as is) if the alcohol-like taste doesn't bother me?
2) what can I do with fermented honey (considering I don't know what type of bacteria/yeast is in it)?
Thanks

Eat fermented honey?
by: Angela

Hi Olga,
If you don't know what type of bacteria was used to ferment the honey, I would avoid consuming it.

Bee healthy,
Angela
