Honey Spoon

Honey Dipper: A honey dipper, or honey spoon, is a wooden utensil made from grooved wood. Unusually, the handle is also wooden, but in some cases, it is made of iron, aluminum, or plastic. Some more expensive honey dippers/honey-spoons are made of decorative glass. These are, of course, fragile. In many counties where the instruments have been preserved, there is evidence that original honey dippers were made from baked clay with heavy iron content (giving them a red glow). In most modern kitchens and television ads, the consensus is that dippers are usually made of wood. Production: In many broadcast programs titled “how to make a honey dipper”, honey dippers are made using a single piece of hardy wood. Usually pine is not preferable due to its fragility.

The honey coats the combs of the hive and is stored for later consumption by the workers and queen. Honey production takes a relatively long period of time to accumulate enough amounts of honey for human consumption. Health Benefits: Honey is considered a “health food”. The health benefits of honey are well-studied and historically verifiable. Humans have been harvesting honey from bees since the beginning of written history. As of now some benefits of long-term consumption of honey include: • Wound healing and antiseptic properties (applied externally) • Cough suppression (lubrication and physical scraping of bacteria)...
