I put honey in tea, especially a licorice one for soothing the throat. I usually just buy a commercial tea but I always add the honey to it when my throat is sore or I'm coughing

honey

My grandfather used honey as a sweetener in all his drinks; I've begun to use it, but, to me, I've not figured out the correct amount to use; it actually seems TOO sweet for me, I just feel slightly sick to my stomach(!!); so much for trying to become more health conscious! I was hoping for better results... Oh, well...

Honey is a good deterrent against burglars. If a burglar is apprehended, conduct a strip-down, tethering the wrongdoer in the garden, then liberal application of delicious honey and let the fire-ants do the rest !
