Can I freeze honey to make it last longer?

    Yes, honey can be frozen to ensure freshness. It should be frozen in a container with extra room, because it expands as it freezes. Also, it may crystallize, but this can be remedied by putting the container in warm water for a few minutes.

    Yes. Over time honey loses its color and flavor and it will also granulate. Freezing is the best way to store honey over a long period.

    Just remember honey is known to have an extremely long shelf life.  The National Honey Board suggests that depending on the kind of honey, generally they hold a shelf life of at least two years, if not more.  It will not form mold due to its composition.  If you’re not planning on keeping it for years and years, it will still last a long time storing it in room temperature.

    Honey has an extremely long shelf life and is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral. So there really is no reason to freeze honey. You just risk crystallizing it. If it does, you can always heat it up to soften it again.
