Homemade honey

Homemade Honey

“Honey collection is an ancient activity. Humans apparently began hunting for honey at least 8,000 years ago, as evidenced by a cave painting in Valencia, Spain. The painting is a Mesolithic rock painting, showing two honey-hunters collecting honey and honeycomb from a wild bee nest. The figures are depicted carrying baskets or gourds, and using a ladder or series of ropes to reach the wild nest”. Wikipedia

My neighbour has some bee colonies. Usually, they visit my garden.


I love honey and today I had a surprise: homemade honey :D

On the left, what´s left of a commercial brand. On the right, honey.

Nutritional facts according to the USDA, here.

Each teaspoon contains 17,30 amazing grams of carbohydrates. It´s a boost of energy much healthier than an energy drink or pre-workout. These carbohydrates can be easily converted into glucose by even the most sensitive stomachs since it´s very easy for the body to digest this pure, natural substance.

I´m sure you have a delicious recipe which includes honey, right?

      1. I don’t think I could do homemade lol guess I could try! The raw kind I get from the farmers market looks like your homemade kind, might be as close as I can get 😆

      2. I´ve got it, thank you :)
        I guess we have some ancient traditions around here :D
        My neighbour did all the job :D

    1. Who doesn´t love honey? :)
      I appreciate your compliment but it´s the easiest way to start. Let´s play, name a food ;)
      And thank you so much for clarification.

      1. Hehe you are a social soda drinker :D
        You shouldn´t worry about those sodas with friends. It´s a very moderate intake :)

      2. Soda day and nigtht is addiction.
        Soda once a week is moderation.
        No soda at all is abstinence.
        And I´m not sure that abstinence is a healthy habit at all :)

  1. I’ve never been a fan of honey, but I think I better change that! I’ve been told that if I eat local honey, my allergies will decrease. Another good reason to get a ‘taste of honey’!

    1. It´s better than white sugar, for sure.
      I´m sorry but even its benefits for regular cold are not proven :)
      What does your doc tell? :D
      Big hug, David.

      1. I prefer the anecdotal claims I’ve received from friends, who swear honey calms down their spring allergies. I’ll let you know this spring if it works. :-)

    1. Sadly, bee colonies aren´t popular around here. It´s hard to find at local markets. That´s why I´m so happy with this jar. I feel like Gollum or so :)

  3. Ohhh..yummm. Nature’s gold! As you well know, I love honey with everything I can just have it with. My favourite? Melted butter and honey on homemade bread just out of the oven. Nom nom nom!

  4. This is a fantastic post!!! If you don’t mind, I’d love to replicate this with a photo of my own home made honey versus a commercial brand.. Such a good comparison, good informative read too.
    Thanks heaps :)
