    Default 20 year old honey bottles question

    I have a question about some old honey bottles pint size. I have had them in storage (dark basement) for about 20 years now along with the (bear type pints). Some were in original boxes, but some were in plastic bags along with the lids. Would this be safe to use?

    I'd give 'em a good wash, rinse in sanitizer, and use 'em.

    I had some honey from 1990 that I had 3 years ago. It was crystalized solid. We had 6 quarts and did not have any problems.

    if its for you, no issues. However, Lots of things grow in the basements. If you do Id wash and sterilize them as if canning vegetables(don't know the temperatures you need to use). Plastic I would discard
