National "I LOVE HONEY" Day

December 18th is National "I Love Honey" Day!

Here are today's five food things to know about honey:

1) Greeks and Roman referred to honey as a food fit for the gods.
2) A honey wine was developed, and largely consumed by many. Its given name was mead.
3) Honey was so in demand in the eleventh century that it was a stipulation for German peasants to offer their feudal lords payment in honey and beeswax.
4) Have allergies? Take a teaspoon a day of a honey made from the region where you reside and it will aid in developing resistance to pollen thereby reducing your allergies.
5) Have chapped lips? Apply honey!
