honey

A sweet syrup created by bees and stored in the hive as a food source. Honey is a natural source of sugar with almost no vitamins, but it takes on the flavor of the flower from which the nectar was derived. Popular honey flavors include thyme, lavender, rosemary and orange blossom.

Whether Greek or Roman times, the Middle Ages or in the Bible, honey has always been a food worthy of the gods. It is used a condiment for sweet dishes, a sweetening agent in baked goods such as shortbread and gingerbread, and also to sweeten the meat dishes of North African and North American cuisine.
