National Honey Week 2005 13th - 19th February

Start the day the natural way this St. Valentine’s and invest in a pot of honey. The sticky stuff not only boosts languishing libidos with its natural energy giving properties but, as a delicious, healthy accompaniment to many breakfast choices, honey can provide that extra buzz needed on a cold February morning.

Fast Facts…

    *
      The term ‘honeymoon’ derives from nature’s scrumptious sticky stuff – in ancient Persia, newly-weds celebrated the start of their married life by guzzling glasses of honey mixed with water everyday for a month to ensure a frisky future together.
    *
      Honey has heart health benefits – studies suggest it improves the levels of antioxidants in the blood¹. To reap the benefits just add honey to a warm bowl of porridge, spread on a chunky slice of toast or blend in to a fruit smoothie, it couldn’t be simpler!
    *
      The average honey bee will actually make only one twelfth of a teaspoon of honey in its lifetime – compare this to the average UK consumption of 25,000 tonnes a year and guess how many bees we need to sustain our honey cravings…
    *
      With excellent antiseptic properties, honey provides a moist healing environment in which infection can rapidly clear, making it a good homeopathic dressing for use on burns and minor wounds².
    *
      Adding a tablespoon of honey to meat before cooking helps block free radicals (which attack the body’s cells) and improves the taste and smell of the meat³.
    *
      The honey bee is the only insect that produces food eaten by man.

I didn't know that honey applied to food could block free radicals.  Very interesting.

Being vegetarian myself, applying honey to meat blocks honey consumption!! :lol:

Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world
