Honey

Honey is the only food that does not spoil while in an edible state.

Why? Well, let me tell you. While honey isn’t the same as regular, granulated, white sugar, it’s still a sugar. And sugars don’t contain much water in their natural state. And very few bacteria and microorganisms can live in the resulting low-moisture environment.

The oldest honey ever found was unearthed in Georgia, and dates back over 5,000 years. So could you eat 5,000 year old honey? Well, if it’s spent that time sealed and stored against moisture, sure. If it’s crystallized, it’s not spoiled, just heat it up and put it in your food of choice.
