Real honey

I just read this, another WTH article concerning the food we are buying in this country. Good grief!  Can we trust ANYTHING available on the grocery store shelves anymore?

Thanks for sharing this important info. I had been resisting purchasing raw honey b/c of the higher price. This article "opened my eyes" and my next visit to my local health food store or farmer's market will have me buying a jar of local raw honey. Any honey still in my pantry will be trashed immediately!

I know...I hate that becasue I do love honey.  But since I'm not doing WB for weight loss I will use a little bit of honey from time to time anyway, like for my cereal recipe.  Haven't read the link yet but have a feeling I'm not going to like it.

Back in my college/hippie days.....we lived next door to a bee keeper so we learned a little about bees.  When they remove the supers (which are full of honey) they extract by rotating in a cylinder vat and the honey drips down the sides (probably more modern techniques are used these days) and is then put in containers. In the fall, the keepers keep some of the honey in the supers to keep the bees fed throughout the winter, but they also add sugar water since the remaining honey is often not enough to keep the hive alive.


So, the moral to this story is: if bees play a vital role in pollinating all our crops, flowers, fruits, vegetation etc....are we doing them an injustice by taking their food source and replacing it with a substandard version?

 There is a recipe Iím interested in trying for a grain-free cereal/granola. One of the ingredients is 1/4 cup honey. Does anyone know of an acceptable substitute for the honey? Hereís a link to the recipeÖ

Kathy, Nature's Hollow makes a sugar free honey, they also carry sugar free maple syrup, ketchup and  a fairly good BBQ sauce.
