As a topping with fresh bread, a sweetener for my coffee, or just by itself honey is a very delicious food and, in my opinion, it's hard to beat! It remains that way even after I read this article from Listverse.

Bees have two stomachs, one of which is completely dedicated to storing the nectar they collect from flowers. When full, this stomach can weigh as much as the bee itself. These honeybees return to the hive after visiting upward of 1,500 flowers. Once there, they pass off the nectar to worker bees by vomiting it up out of their second stomach and into the worker bees’ waiting mouths. This regurgitation process is repeated until the partially digested nectar is finally prepared and then deposited into a honeycomb. From there, the water is fanned out of the nectar, which reduces the substance into the syrupy bug vomit we all know and love.
Another good feature about honey is that it doesn't spoil...ever! It hardens from time to time (crystallizes), but can be brought back to liquid form easily enough.Good stuff !
Coffee out on the patio this morning, where it.s nice and cool but dry!
