o Beeswax is edible and can be chewed like a gum and eaten as white yellowish roughage. Some people use it on hot buttered toast and let it soak in, or on toast spread with crunchy peanut butter. Others put it into their hot tea to melt, or dip it into melted milk chocolate.

How do I replace sugar with honey?
o When replacing granulated sugar with honey in recipes, start by substituting up to half of the sugar requested in the recipe. For baked goods, be sure to reduce the oven temperature by 25°F to prevent it from getting too dark. Reduce any liquid required by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey used and add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda for each cup of honey used. Due to its high fructose content, honey has a higher sweetening power than sugar. This means that you can use less honey than sugar to achieve the desired sweetness.
What is the nutritional information of honey?
o Honey is composed mainly of carbohydrates and water, and also contains small amounts of a wide range of vitamins and minerals, including niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium and zinc.
