Back to Basics- Week 3

So we are adding back in honey this week.  Nothing too big and only found in a couple of recipes in small amounts.  Besides being a natural sweetener honey can have many other benefits to the body.  It can be used to as a natural antispetic and local honey can be used to treat seasonal allergies. (I enjoy a small spoonful in my evening tea during the awful hayfever season).  Best honey will be local but other natural brands will be fine- just make sure you are not purchasing processed sugar water.  Also if your honey crystallises (all will eventually) just place in a water bath to bring back up to 135F and allow to cool. If you are really into the honey scene think about making a bee hotel with your kids!  Bees are essential to the balance of our agricultural systems but are under threat due to chemicals being used to treat crops.  If you are really crazy find your local bee-keeping association and have a play.
