In ancient times, honey was used to treat infected wounds; now, many studies confirm honey's ability to clear infection, promote healing, and protect against bacteria and fungi.
Honey can also ease nighttime coughing in children.
Of all the sweeteners, raw, unfiltered honey is probably the closest to nature and the least refined.
Use it to sweeten beverages, in baked goods, or as a spread on toast.
Personally, I love to eat the honey cone alone by itself; and, to pour honey directly on my Honey Nut Cheerios with skim milk.
