Help Yourself to Honey
Many of us have had the pleasure of tasting honey, and even use it on a regular basis. Whether it’s a teaspoon of honey used to flavor a cup of tea, or a drizzle of honey on a warm English Muffin, the sweet, silky sugar is nothing short of delicious. This all natural sweetener is made by bees and while you can find honey in just about any grocery store, treat yourself to the honey made in your area, which you can usually find at a farm stand or local natural food store.
The benefits of honey have been discussed and debated for years. Some research suggests honey works as a topical antibiotic, or offers relief to seasonal allergy sufferers. If you really delve into the research the information and possibilities are fascinating. For example, most microorganisms cannot grow in honey, therefore when sealed, honey does not spoil, even over thousands of years.
Because honey is so versatile and so tasty, it can be used in a plethora of recipes, from savory dinner entrees to scrumptious desserts. Below I’ve compiled a list of some favorites for you to try!
