Raw Honey has been revered throughout history for its sacred value. Jars of it were even found in Egyptian tombs, buried with the elite to have in the afterlife. Though it should not be consumed in excess, as it is a sugar, raw honey is a great choice when choosing to sweeten a dessert. Raw honey, and NOT the processed honey found in most grocery store squeezey bottles:
- is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, making it a perfect home remedy for the common cold.
- contains live enzymes and flavanoids which are known for their anti-oxidant powers.
Please note that raw honey is used in many of my recipes for cooking at moderately hot temperatures. This will obviously take away from some of the good properties of the honey, but as long as it doesn’t boil I am confident we are still ingesting its goodness. Plus it tastes way better than regular honey.
