Uses Of Honey
Unlike cane sugar, which has empty calories, honey contains antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Honey's uses are many and varied.
Eating local honey regularly can help prevent allergies and hay fever. Honey has been used as a home remedy for centuries to help alleviate symptoms associated with the common cold. Honey's strong anti-bacterial properties make it useful in treating burns and wounds. Modern medicine has begun using this age-old remedy in hospitals. Mixed with equal parts of apple cider vinegar, it has been known to lessen the symptoms of arthritis over a period of time.
It can be used by diabetics in small amounts because it does not elevate blood sugar to the degree that cane sugar does. Honey is a humectant, which means it attracts and retains moisture, helping to prevent dry skin and dull, lifeless hair.
Honey can replace other sweeteners in many, many recipes. It is excellent in baked goods, glazes for meats and vegetables, mixed in yogurt or ice cream, and is a healthy addition to green and other herbal teas. We drink it with cream in our coffee each morning. It is delicious!
