with added syrups.

Honey has many good uses from cooking to
helping skin heal! It helps dissolve mucus when

a small amount.  Certain young children can get botulism.




The different flowers which were gathered determine the flavor

It takes 50,000 bees to produce 500 pounds of honey in one year!




Honey has been waiting almost ten million years for a good biography. Bees have been making this prized food -- for centuries the world's only sweetener -- for millennia, but we humans started recording our fascination with it only in the past few thousand years.

Part history, part love letter, Robbing the Bees is a celebration of bees and their magical produce, revealing the varied roles of bees and honey in nature, world civilization, business, and gastronomy.

To help navigate the worlds and cultures of honey, Bishop -- beekeeper, writer, and honey aficionado -- apprentices herself to Donald Smiley, a professional beekeeper who harvests tupelo honey in the Florida panhandle. She intersperses the lively lore and science of honey with lyrical reflections on her own and Smiley's beekeeping experiences.

Its passionate research, rich detail, and fascinating anecdote and illustrations make Holley Bishop's Robbing the Bees a sumptuous look at the oldest, most delectable food in the world.

HONEY

For thousands of years honey was the only source of concentrated sugar.

Uniqueness, scarcity and desirability connected it to divinity very early in human history thus ascribing to it symbolic, magic and therapeutic significance.

Much of the myth many of the traditional medicinal uses have continued until today.

Honey is said to facilitate better physical performance and resistance to fatigue, particularly for repeated effort;
it also promotes higher mental efficiency.

It is therefore used by both the healthy and the sick for any kind of weakness, particularly in the case of digestive or assimilative problems.

Improved growth of non-breast fed newborn infants, improved calcium fixation in bones and curing anaemia and anorexia may all be attributed to some nutritional benefit or stimulation from eating honey.

A truly lush, radiant enthusiast’s guide, The Backyard Beekeeper’s Honey Handbook goes beyond the scope of a cookbook to introduce to readers the literal cornucopia of honey varieties available.

An intuitive follow-up to The Backyard Beekeeper, this book will presume beekeeping experience but reintroduce the basics.

It is an insight into the practical, back-to-the-earth beekeeping lifestyle and well as the artisan cultivation of honey varieties.
Supplementary support for this book lay in the fact that interest in tapping honey’s holistic and whole-health potential dovetails nicely into the natural health and green movements.

Also, honey as natural, lower-calorie sweetener has garnered positive PR by those working against the obesity epidemic.
