Can anyone confirm that maple syrup & honey will last at least 10 years in storage ? How about peanut butter ?
From what I've read, maple syrup (if pure) doesn't go bad. If it gets mold on it, scrape it off and bring it to a slow boil unless you want syrup on everything. Then just put it in a jar or bottle and it should be fine.
Mold is the problem. If there's no way to refrigerate it, it's going to mold up after opening. I don't think it's boiled down to the point of having as high of sugar concentration as honey has. I think I'd store maple sugar instead, and make a small amount of syrup with it as needed.if it was cooked down proper and canned it should last indefinitely sealed, after it's open refrigerate, if it molds poor through cheese cloth and bring to a boil re-bottle. This comes from a neighbor who makes 100+ gallons of syrup
Natural Maple Syrup will last for more than 25yrs. We had a maple tree in Newtown CT and I remember my mother use to can it and store it . We still have some of it and it has been about 20yrs. Remember it has to be Natural not the store bought in the plastic bottles. It must be stored in a Glass Jar!Can anyone confirm that maple syrup & honey will last at least 10 years in storage
True that and says all we need to know about honey storage. One of natures true miracle foods and topical antibiotics. Love it when it gets all gooey and chewy just before the crystalline stage. Wonder if peanuts store better than peanut butter? Than just whip up a batch when you need some?I agree honey lasts forever they have actually found some in the tombs of Egypt that was still good.
