Does honey ever go off?

 

Yesterday, during our Know It Alls segment, someone asked us whether honey has an expiry date.

 

Listener George (he’s a retired apiarist) rang in and reckoned honey never goes off.

 

But it got us thinking – what does it take to be an apiarist? Can anyone keep bees at home? We thought we’d better ask an expert!

 

Doug Purdie is an apiarist – he’s actually known as the “Bee-Vangelist”, and joined John & Garry for a yarn.
