Honey is one
of the earliest forms of saccharine substances
known to man.
Picture of Honey Bee Hives
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.

Part history book, part handbook, and part cookbook, this illustrated tome covers every facet of the ancient hobby of beekeeping, from how to manage hives safely to harvesting one's own honey, and ideas for how to use honey and beeswax.
Detailed instructions for making candles, furniture polish, beauty products, and nearly 100 honey-themed recipes are included.
Fully illustrated with how-to photography and unique etchings, any backyard enthusiast or gardener can confidently dive into beekeeping with this book in hand (or daydream about harvesting their own honey while relaxing in the comfort of an armchair).

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.
