Long before sugar, honey is being used since ancient times in confection, cookery, food preservation and in medicine. This by-product of bees is said to have the longest shelf life; when the pyramids of Egypt were excavated, archaeologists found jars upon jars of honey and when they examined it they are surprisingly still edible, considering that they stood for almost two thousand years; thus the proverb "honey never spoils". Honey also has some antiseptic properties. It is said that its is three times as potent as other common antiseptics like iodine.
These and all other useful properties of honey are written in The Honey Book. This comprehensive guide shows other practical uses of this sweet, natural food the way nature intended it to be. Isn't it good that a remedy for even the slightest malady is in a jar resting in your kitchen?
