The Bees Have It!
 
I'm impressed and a little humbled in the process.

I just bought a very large jar of honey that had a tag with information about how bees gather nectar for the honey that we eat.

This from a local small company:

"In order to gather nectar for a single pound of honey, bees make 50,000-75,000 trips to the hive, averaging 1 to 1 1/2 miles each-a distance equal to three times around the earth."

And I just happened to be eating some when I clicked on this thread :lol3:

“Veiled in this fragile filigree of wax is the essence of sunshine, golden and limpid, tasting of grassy meadows, mountain wildflowers, lavishly blooming orange trees, or scrubby desert weeds. Honey, even more than wine, is a reflection of place. If the process of grape to glass is alchemy, then the trail from blossom to bottle is one of reflection. The nectar collected by the bee is the spirit and sap of the plant, its sweetest juice. Honey is the flower transmuted, its scent and beauty transformed into aroma and taste.” -Quoted from Honey from flower to table by Stephanie Rosenbaum, 2002, Chronicle Books, LLC, Introduction, page 10.

May I also suggest to those that are able to face the sun either sun rise or sun set and just let yourself breathe without thinking about it, feel how your body wants to breathe. The energy from the sun can more easily enter when you breathe from the heart, without all those thoughts getting in the way. :original:

Isn't honey the one food that never technicaly goes rotten? Unless water or something else gets in it...

if it is the key... where is the lock?
