Help?! Honey

(11 Posts)

So I bought a jar of clear honey from Morrisons months ago. It's been stored in my larder/pantry since then.
It is still sealed and has a BBE date of May 2017.
It appears to have something growing in the bottom...
At first, I wondered if it was sugar crystallising, then I wondered if it could be Mould spores (It looks fluffy).

I wanted a second opinion before Intake it back, as I don't want to look silly winkblush

Sorry for the typos, I'm on my phone. Here's a couple of other pics.

Just crystallising I think. I don't think it's possible for mould to grow in honey

Ok, that's reassuring! I've never sugar crystallise in honey before, but it does look quite interesting! Thanks for your thoughts! smile

looks like crystalising or separation of the pollen. happens sometimes, esp when temperatures change.

it will anyway be fine to eat.

It looks fairly normal to me. Just give it a good mix. Although they'd probably take it back if you took it in.

Yep that's normal :-) still good to eat

Wasn't honey found in the pyramids and it was still edible?

Off to google.

Thanks, I'm happy to be the proverbial guinea pig and eat it on some toast! wink
I won't take it back, it cost pennies and it would only be thrown away.

If you stand the jar in warm water it should go back to normal.

tbh 'normal' honey is usually creamy/crystallised and rock hard in my cold kitchen atm
the runny honey is heat treated (or very expensive specialist honey).
