This sweet substance has been mentioned in our recent posts on root beer and mead. What exactly is honey?

According to the National Honey Board, “honey is honey, it’s just that simple.  A bottle of pure honey contains the natural sweet substance produced by honey bees from the nectar of plants or secretions of living parts of plants. ” In the United States, there are over 300 types of honey with the color and flavor determined by the types of flowers from which the bees harvest nectar.

Stay tuned as we learn more about honey in future posts.
