Honey I'm Home!

Honey is one of natures most natural treats. With several benefits to your health, honey is a necessity in the kitchen.

Honey is made from flower nectar collected by bees. The nectar is broken down into simple sugars stored inside honeycombs in the bee hive. The honeycomb's design and constant fanning of the bees' wings causes evaporation, creating sweet liquid honey. Honey's color and flavor are based on the type flower nectar collected by the bees.
