According to the National Honey Board, the population of a single honeybee hive may travel as many as 55,000 miles collectively and visit over two million flowers- just to make one pound of honey! Honey has been found to raise protective antioxidant levels in the blood when consumed daily, it even has antibacterial properties, and is a great sore-throat soother. I have a real love-hate relationship with honey, I love honey but HATE bees! Honey has been called “liquid gold,” and for a good reason I might add! I call Mead my liquid gold! So, now that I have sweetened up the pot and given you the buzz about honey, it’s is also what I most often call my husband. I guess I really do use “honey” daily!
