"Honey is a sweet food made by bees using nectar from flowers

What is honey? "Honey is a sweet food made by bees using nectar from flowers. The variety produced by honey bees is the one most commonly referred to, as it is the type of honey collected by most beekeepers and consumed by people."Spoonfuls of Honey is a definitive book on anything you ever wanted to know about honey, from the different types of honey, to explanations of crystallization, how it is removed from the comb to nutrition. There is a section on honey in the kitchen along with recipes. There is another section on what kinds to purchase and storing of the honey. There are light honeys, medium honeys and dark honeys.Did you know that in WWI, honey was used on the wounded to treat their wounds? Honey has significant antibacterial properties and some cultures use honey for cuts and abrasions. Bees play an important role in pollination of plants and flowers and are crucial to the environment.You can use honey as is as a syrup, in butters, and in most recipes that use sugar. I love honey in tea, I prefer it to sugar and honey used in recipes for meat are fantastic. One of the recipes is Chicken with honey, lemon and thyme. That sure does sound good, I think I will make this one the next time I have chicken. Not only can you use honey on meats but on vegetables and fruits as well. Great in sauces and dips.I love this book, I will certainly be going to this cookbook for recipes with honey. I highly recommend this book for the discerning cook!I received a copy for review and was not monetarily compensated for my review.
Sweet from around the world

5.0 out of 5.0 by Janet K Hoadley on January 9, 2015
Basic honey information, recipes and details into different types of honey from around the world. This is a UK book but don't let that stop US readers! Recipes using less sugar, more fruit and veggies, as well as sweet treats like honey fudge and other snacks offer a balance of uses. There are also recipes for main dishes beyond the standard US fare - including duck, lamb and other meats.Basic descriptions of different types of honey, tasting honey tips, different colors of honey and other fun facts give a good honey primer. I previewed a copy via NetGalley, but this is a book many will enjoy. Sadly many will pass by and you shouldn't. Tasty recipes alone are worth the cost. If you're looking to expand your diet and reduce sugar, start here.

For honey lovers this will give new ideas of honeys to try.An excellent book for those who want to explore the use of honey in cooking.
