Honey is a sweet, viscous foodstuff produced by bees and a number of other related insect species. It is created when the insect collects floral nectar or the sweet secretions of other insects, which are then processed by way of regurgitation, enzymes, and evaporation into the sweet product, typically stored in honeycombs. It is sweet thanks to the monosaccharide content and, due to the fact that most microorganisms do not grow in honey, does not spoil when properly stored.
Honey is a tiny meal that can help in a pinch, but is mostly useful as an ingredient in several beverages. See here.
