Anything sugar can do, honey can do better.
Most famous for its role as a sweetener, honey is packed with extra uses. Bad encounter with a hot pan? Honey's antibacterial properties will soothe a burn. Dry skin from the change in weather? A honey face mask will make you glow.
Auxiliary benefits aside, our tea, baked goods and toast would be lackluster without honey. And as cute as the plastic bear is, you should seek out the good stuff, especially when eating honey on its own. Single varietal is the way to go in order to taste the nuances between something like basswood and sourwood. Since honey even has its own terroir (much like wine), every bottle is slightly different.
