Honey, I'm home
However, we do have alternatives. According to Slow Food USA organic honey, as cultivated by companies such as Savannah Bee (http://www.savannahbee.com/) offers diverse flavors, bee colonies and old-fashioned beekeeping practices.
So the next time you're about to reach for the cute little plastic bear full of honey on your grocery store shelf, reconsider. Visit Savannah Bee's website and order some of their honey and other products. There's even a handy Find a Store link to direct you to a retail outlet that carries their honey. It's time we support companies that value the same things we do.
A word of caution: Babies should not be given honey (or corn syrup) due to the risk of botulism from bacteria spores which can multiply in the intestines because infants have not yet developed intestinal flora to battle this potentially fatal disease. So if Aunt Ginny offers you some honey to put on the tip of your baby's pacifier, politely decline. This is not something you want to take a chance with!
Keeping it green...and healthy,
