The honey bee produces honey by collecting nectar from flowers. The worker bees digest the nectar for about 30 minutes before spreading it out into empty honeycomb cells to dry. Wax is placed over dry honey by the bees to preserve it.

The honey produced is a sweet complex mixture of simple sugars with antibacterial and antifungal properties. As sweet as granulated sugar, it can be used in baking or eaten alone, the flavour depending on which nectar source was used.

Throughout ancient times honey was used to treat ailments, such as wounds, burns and ingested but only recently has honeys antiseptic and antibacterial properties been understood. Its use throughout history is long and varied, in ancient Egypt it was used to embalm the dead, many different cultures it was used to sweeten recipes, in cakes and biscuits, and is written about by many famous Roman authors. It was used as tributes to the gods depicted in 8000 year old cave painting, honeys history is as rich as its taste.
