In many cultures honey is frequently a symbol for sweetness of every kind and has long been considered an aphrodisiac. Whether used to sweeten tea, baked goods or savory dishes, honey is an essential in any kitchen. Local organic honey is available from Faby’s Bees at our weekly Certified Farmers’ Markets in a variety of flavors from orange to wildflower!
Honey is a sweet fluid made by honeybees using the nectar of flowering plants. In addition to its culinary uses, MayoClinic.com describes several of honey’s health benefits.
“Honey contains mostly sugar, as well as a mix of amino acids, vitamins, minerals, iron, zinc and antioxidants. In addition to its use as a natural sweetener, honey is used as an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial agent. People commonly use honey orally to treat coughs and topically to treat burns and promote wound healing.” Honey should not be used by those who are allergic to bees!
Our Sunday, Certified Farmers’ Market offers a variety of locally grown organic citrus fruits, produce, eggs, honey, freshly-baked breads and more.
