Is my Honey still good?

by Karen Betts
(Jamestown NY)

I recently moved into an over 100=+ home. As we were taking things to store in the basement...a friend found what appear to be two jars of honey. This honey is sooooo dark though.It has some funky crystalization going on too. I have no idea how long these honey jars have been down there. I want to open them and at least smell them. I mean...this honey is almost black...

Very interesting. Would love it if you could post a pic with your post. The honey, provided it is honey, should be edible even if it is decades old. That being said, open it and smell for signs of rancidity/spoilage, although I've never come across rotten honey!
