jungle honey

2014-03-18 honeycomb by Melissa Crossett thelandinbetween.com Northern Laos-2 Ryan brought this home the other night.  A whole kilo of honey in the honeycomb.  It was being sold by some guys who had harvested it from the jungle.  It’s absolutely delicious!  It wasn’t the cheapest at $10 per kilo, but you can’t get honey more raw or local than this.  We even had to pick out some bees.

Honey is one natural form of sweetener that we use on occasion.  Raw honey is full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.  It has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties.  It has many health benefits, including helping with allergies, digestion, blood pressure, etc…  All in moderation, of course!
