NiE Bees to honey

Next time you are outside, see if you can spot bees hard at work.

Bees play an important role in pollinating flowering plants. In fact a third of all human food is pollinated by bees.

But even better our winged friends harvest a sweet, thick, sticky, golden liquid that we can eat - honey.

Made from flower nectar, combined with an enzyme secreted by bees, then concentrated in the honeycomb cells, honey is not only a good sweetener, it also has many nutritional and medicinal benefits and uses.

And it's the small but very clever, industrious and efficient bee that provides us with this tasty and healthy product.
