Raw Honey: Miracle Food -part 1

Raw honey is a “miraculous” and delicious treat!  It is the oldest sweetener known to mankind, and it tastes yummy just about any way you try it: drizzled over fresh strawberries, sweetening your favorite herbal tea, or just to eat by the spoonful!  It is considered by many to be an amazing food and medicine!

Bee keeping and the production of raw honey is believed to date back to at least 700 BC. In the Bible we read of God leading His people into a promised land “flowing with milk and honey”. It is also reported that archaeologists have found jars of honey that were placed in ancient Egyptian tombs 2,000 years ago, and discovered that they still tasted delicious!

Raw honey contains natural antioxidant properties, and many people believe it may be able to overpower destructive chemicals which have been known to cause many diseases. Research has also found that dark-colored honey seems to possess more antioxidants than varieties with a lighter color.

Raw honey may also increase energy because 75 to 80 percent of its composition is natural sugar. Raw honey also contains an extensive list of vital nutrients, including seven members of the B vitamin family, vitamin C, amino acids,  and several enzymes.

Choosing raw honey: Most honey in grocery stores, is not RAW honey but “commercial” honey that has been heated at 70 degrees or higher. So check out local health food stores or organic beekeepers in your area, or look  online for organic raw honey.


Now… let’s see how raw honey tastes in a real life recipe!
