A Sweet Fact

Sorry that I haven't been able to post a lot, I won't be posting as much because of school. Here's a cool fact I just learned:

Did you know that honey is the only food that does not spoil? Jars of honey discovered in ancient Egyptian tombs have been tested and found edible.

Hey Connor that's super cool, except for one thing...unpastuerized honey is suseptible to botulism.

Dude, I so wouldn't be signing up to try that ancient honey. But I believe it's still good.

Actually pasteurization doesn't kill botulism, because it's not a bacteria but a spore. So it's either in there or it isn't, and there's nothing you can do about it. But waiting a thousand years won't make it better or worse. Just don't feed honey to babies.
