Planning on having honey on your toast for breakfast tomorrow?
Honey is basically bee vomit, which bees use to feed their young and sustain the hive during winter. To make such glorious stuff, honeybees sip the best nectar from the ripest flowers. Nectar is a watery mix of various sugars, with those sugars accounting for between 3 and 80 percent of the solution. Through a combination of repeated regurgitation and vigorous wing fanning, bees make the solution lose moisture, giving the sugars sticky-sweet reign--and giving you the essence of spring flowers on your toast.
