Honey is such a versatile ingredient. We throw it in our tea, we use it in baking, we even throw it on our desserts. The nectar that comes from bees is one of the most iconic foods around, dating back millennia to early humans foraging for the sweet natural substance.
We found ourselves drawn to another Discovery/Science Channel segment on the captivating process on manufacturing honey in bulk.
The video takes us through the journey of honey from bees drawing nectar from flowers and honeycomb creation. Beekeepers maintain their bees until the honeycombs are filled and ready to be removed. They’re then taken into the factory and scrapped and spun until the honey is separated from the honey combs.
Some factories even package honeycombs as is for consumers to eat.
Check out the video to see the fascinating process behind honey. The next time you douse your oven-fresh biscuit in the golden manna, take a minute to appreciate where it came from. Then, you have our permission to bite.
