What is honey?
Honey is a natural product produced by thousands of hardworking female bees. They gather nectar from local flora, storing the sweet liquid into their special stomachs called honey sacs. Back at their hive, the bees work together to convert the nectar until it thickens into honey. The substance is then deposited into the tiny hexagon shapes of the honeycomb. The bees flap their wings rapidly to evaporate water from the honey, ending with the final step of capping it off with beeswax until the bees are ready to consume the honey as their main source of carbohydrates.
What makes Hawaii honey unique?
Honey itself is unique region to region based on the local flora, which makes it such a fascinating and exciting element to work with!
