Blueberry, buckwheat or wildflower - which is your flavor of choice? No wonder honeybees do their little happy dance to let the rest of the hive know which flowers give the juiciest nectar - we would have been just as thrilled to find such unique and tasty flavors of the tasty amber treasure!
What is Honey
Honey is a sweet liquid created by honeybees who collect the sugary nectar of flowers from their surroundings. They retreat to their hive to eat, digest, and then regurgitate the liquid, which they store in small waxy units they build, called honeycombs. They flap their wings to fan it and evaporate the water. The resultant honey is viscous and sticky and serves as their winter food.
