Me too. I bought a jar last year before Halloween, about a cup total, and I still have about 1/4 c left. I bought another because I heard it might help build an immunity to allergens in the air, but haven't even opened that. I use honey so rarely (usually just for dipping Quorn nuggets) that it wouldn't bother me too much if the honey was just corn syrup colored yellow/gold

I told my bf where honey came from and he refused to believe it
He said it was nasty, but eats burgers. I would rather eat bee vomit than the bloody flesh of an animal. Both are gross though.

When I bake, I use maple syrup sometimes, no honey. Love it.
A lot of Isa and Terry's recipes call for maple. Maple is about equally as expensive as honey, if not more. I buy the giant bottle of Maple at TJ and local honey is about $5 for about 12 oz.

I've seen those. We need to go to Disneyland someday together, we would have too much fun

It seems like all articles say local honey is the way to go for the allergen immunity to work.
