Honey… Anyone???

Gift…

I had the program at TOPS  last night… that’s my weight loss group…

I had been reading about the benefits of “Honey” …Very interesting!…

So I decided to share what I had found out…

It has significant natural antioxidant properties…

It can give a natural relief to respiratory ailments

Improves energy and stamina

Helps to heal wounds and known to combat infection… 

Reduces stress

It is soothing to minor burns and helps prevent scarring

Honey dates back to 2100 B.C. …

It was the first and most widespread sweetener  used by man…

It was used as a form of currency , tribute or offering…

It has been used in making cement, furniture polish , and varnishes

While the bee  is doing its business of honey production.. it is also performing the vital service of pollinating fruits, legumes, vegetables and other food-producing plants…

Honey bees have been known to travel as far as 40,000 miles and visit over 2 million flowers    to produce one pound of honey

Honey is the only one food that includes all the substances necessary to sustain life, including water  …

After giving my program I shared a recipe that uses Honey in its ingredients…

“Party Punch”

1-1/4 cup honey

1- cup lemon juice

2- cups boiling water

4-cups cranberry juice cocktail

2- cups orange juice

1- quart ginger ale

Dissolve honey in boiling water. Chill. Combine all remaining ingredients except ginger ale. Chill. Before serving, add ginger ale. Makes 20 servings.

Everyone tasted it and had lots of yummy reviews

You can definitely taste the Honey in it… slightly tart… but, sweet enough for sure and very good!…

as I am sitting here drinking the last glass I brought home…

and I think I’ll leave out the “other ingredients”   some suggested…

They are so funny!
