What is honey?
Despite how much we eat the stuff, honey is actually meant for bees - it's stored in honeycombs so bees have something to keep them nourished during colder months when the environment is lacking in flowers.
Honey begins as nectar, but, thanks to the bees, slowly transforms into the gorgeous golden liquid we so love.
How is honey made?
Honey is made by thousands of committed bees. It begins as nectar (a sugary liquid) in flowers, which bees extract using their long, tube-shaped tongue.
After extraction, the honey is stored in the bee's secondary stomach, also known as the 'crop'. Here it mixes with enzymes that alter its pH and composition and make it compatible for long-term storage.
Once the bee's finished collecting, it heads back home, to the hive. Here the bee passes the nectar back through its mouth into the mouth of another bee, and so on and so forth until the partially digested nectar is deposited into a honeycomb.
It's here that the magic happens - bees waft their wings in front of the honeycombs to help water evaporate from the nectar and turn it into lovely, thick honey. Once most of the water has been removed, the comb is sealed by bees with a liquid that eventually hardens into beeswax.
Who knew little old bees did so much?
