Honey Pot

I'm a little  honeybee
Yellow and black
See me gather
Pollen on my back
What the queen bee tells me I must do
So I can make sweet honey for you!

Australia has a great climate and vegetation to provide
the essential ingredients, like the blossoms from which
we get the nectar.

Our eucalypts are particularly good sources of honey and
help give the honey a distinctive taste.

Most of our honey comes from the native eucalypt, the
stringy bark and the iron bark trees

Great flavoured honey is also made from plants such as
clover and lucerne.
These were brought to Australia from overseas.

Tasmania is renowned for it's Leatherwood honey,
this is usually an acquired taste,
but once you are hooked you ARE HOOKED.


Australia also exporters a lot of beeswax, which is often
a base in many products including cosmetic creams.

The Honeycomb is removed from the hive, spun to release
the honey which is strained to remove any beeswax.

Beeswax was once the most popular furniture polish.

Beeswax does not melt readily, in fact it can stand high
temperatures around 60oC.

Beeswax candles are also very much in demand.

Honey Is Used For More Than Eating :-)

down your throat

Cures a Hangover
Honey is a concentrated source of fructose.
Eating Honey on crackers helps your body flush out
whatever alcohol remains in the body.

Relieves Your Cough
Dissolve 1 tablespoon Honey and 1 tablespoon lemon
juice in a small glass of warm water and sip it.
For a stronger solution, combine equal parts
Honey & lemon juice take 1 teaspoon at bedtime.

Substitute Honey For Sugar
When Cooking

Use Honey in place of granulated sugar for up to one-half
of the sugar.
For baked goods, add about one-half teaspoon baking soda
for each cup of honey used, reduce the amount of liquid in
the recipe by one-quarter cup for each cup of honey used,
and reduce oven temperature by 25 degrees Fahrenheit to
prevent over-browning

Even Pooh Bear knows that you are never out
on a limb when you've got good friends.

"Friendship is as sweet as honey"


I eat my peas with honey
I've done it all my life
It makes the peas taste funny
But it keeps them on my knife!
