When kept in low temperature, the starch in potatoes will turn into sugar which will affect the texture and taste when cooked.

It’s actually pointless to keep honey in the fridge for the purpose of preservation. Honey is the only food that can’t go bad or spoiled, thanks to the naturally-present acidic pH that will keep any spoiling microorganism away.

So, just keep it in tightly closed container and leave it somewhere dry for it to last forever.
