What is honey?
Honey is a sweet, aromatic and thick liquid produced by honey bees from flower nectar, honey-dew from the leaves of softwood and hardwood trees, sweet matter secreted by small insects as well as sweet juice from the fruits of certain plants. This honey is stored by bees in honey-combs. The color of honey may vary from almost colorless to a dark brown and its texture from thick liquid to crystal form. Its flavor and scent may vary and will depend on the predominant plant species contained in the honey.
