Old Honey jars with misty honey left

    You can eat it. If you want to make it clear again, just heat it a little in a microwave or in hot water.
    You can wash it down in your sink if you wish - it's perfectly water-soluble.

    They print use-by dates because they are required, but as above, it never goes off.

    If they are worried that sugar crystals in honey are unsafe to drink I am not convinced they've going to go for adding a fungus to it (yeast), watching it grow and then drinking the content.

    If the OP drinks beer or eats bread (and other similar products), they should be used to consuming yeast.

    Op could use it to help heal cuts and scratches. It's a natural antibiotic and anti fungal.

    They have found honey in Egyptian tombs, and it was perfectly edible
