Bees Honey

When using honey for baking add a pinch of baking soda. This will neutalize the honey's acidity and  help the food to rise. If you are making jams, jellies, or candies increase the cooking temperature  just a bit which will allow the extra liquid to evaporate. There are many different types of honey  with different flavors. Orange bloossom honey has a light taste while buckwheat honey is stronger and  better on toast and muffins.
When not to use honey. You should never give honey to infants because it can contain spores that can  cause botulism. They do not thrive in older children or adults. However in infants they can spread and cause infant botulism. Doctors and research have said you should never feed honey to infants  under one year old.
