Why Bees Are

Honeybees have thrived for 50 million years, each colony with 40 to 50,000 individuals coordinated in amazing harmony. So why, eight years ago, did colonies start dying en masse? Marla Spivak reveals four reasons which are interacting with tragic consequences. This is not simply a problem because bees pollinate a third of the world's crops. Could this incredible species be holding up a mirror for us?

The versatility of honey:

Sweetener - Honey is slightly sweeter than sugar, so less can be used to achieve the same sweetness intensity.

Emulsifier - Honey acts as a binder and thickener for sauces, dressings, marinades and dips.

Flavor - Honey not only imparts a unique flavor to any dish, it also balances and enhances the flavor profiles of other ingerdients used in a recipe.

Humectant - Honey provides and retains moisture to a variety of dishes and can even exend the shelf life of baked goods.
