Honey is not supposed to spoil

RGC1982 | Jul 9, 2008 08:33 AM

I have read and heard many times that honey does not spoil, and that honey from hundreds of years ago may still be edible.

However, I find this a little hard to believe when I can't seem to be able to finish the bottom half of my warehouse-sized honey container on a regular basis. For some reason, the first half squeezes and pours out smoothly, but the bottom tends to congeal into a harder mass that does not make its way to the bottom (actually top) of the squeeze bottle no matter how long I stand it upside down on the counter.

Is this spoiling or separation? Is there a way to avoid this? Just curious.
