Still time to order honey for Christmas and stave off those coughs and colds

There are still a few days to order honey in time for Christmas. I am currently using Tracked 48 hour delivery services to post out honey so all should be fine up to the end of this week at least.

Whether you prefer the light delicate flavour of borage honey, seen on the right in the picture below, or the depth of flavour in blossom honey, as on the left, the choice is yours.

Along with local honey being that ‘what can we possibly buy for ……….’ present, it is good to remember the positive side to eating local raw honey. Even NICE, The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence have been issuing guidance for years that good local honey should be the first defence against coughs and colds, rather than antibiotics.

Beekeepers have been saying this for decades.
