Why I Love Honey!

Enlight24

Recently I attended the wedding of my niece and the beautiful bombonniere I received was two lovely pots of honey.  As a lover of honey, I thought is was a well chosen gift.

I want to share with you the reasons why I love honey:

  • I enjoy spreading honey on crumpets on a cold winter’s morning.
  • Honey can be used as a natural sugar alternative to white sugar and tastes delicious on cereal.
  • Adds a sweet flavour to food while cooking such as carrots, chicken, prawns.

  • Honey has a lot of health benefits and is used in many beauty products.
  • Honey pairs well with fruit such as bananas and berries.
  • Great for baking My Blueberry & Banana Loaf
  • Can be added to smoothies like our Mango Smoothie

My favourite type of honey is Manuka Honey and it has many health benefits.
