Laura McIntosh confesses her "Sweet Little Obsession"! Read her blog about the benefits of honey. | Food & Drink
What’s your obsession? You know what I’m talking about… that one thing you simply cannot get enough of. What’s your obsession?(Comments are now allowed below!) “The I can’t live without _______.” Shoes, chocolate, The Hunger Games…. Mine for the moment is honey. There! It’s out. Honey. Wherever I go, whenever I travel, I always bring home some local honey. I literally have a whole shelf of it! Australia, Germany, Thailand, Italy, Napa. If I’ve been there, I’ve brought some back. It NEVER gets old and is not only a sweet treat but sweet memories.
We have the bees to thank for food. Albert Einstein said that without bees we would be extinct in 3 years. If properly stored, honey does not expire! Sealed honey vats were found in King Tut’s tomb and is edible despite being buried by sand for over 2,000 years. Cave paintings have even been discovered of a man robbing a bee’s hive!
