Brains and eggs.
Nutria rat. (Honest, they call it that– and still eat it.)
Bull fries. (Lamb fries, not so bad.)
I rest my case. The lady is right.
Hey Sundancer, funny you mentioned that. I always have to listen to the radio at night when I sleep and one of the stations I like has Coast to Coast Am with George Noory (Art Bell is on weekends). ANYWAY, you know they are all about conspiracies, ghost stories, UFOS and about two weeks ago he had some guy on talking about how there has been a drastic reduction in honeybees’ population and how it can be devastating to plants, pollination, etc. It was very interesting.
BTW, I like honey on my honey butter biscuits from Church’s Chicken or on toast. My daughter likes it in a sandwich with peanut butter and bananas.
Acutally honey is one of the few natural ingredients for as sweetner that we have.
I am concerned that the honey bee is going downhill. I have not seen them in East Tennessee is some time.

And then there’s those figs where the crunchy grit you eat is actually the larvae of some beetle or moth. I think it’s only a certain kind of fig, but I avoid them all together….figs, dates, and I’m picky about raisins.
Funny story about honey- there was some nutritionist in the 80’s/early 90’s whose name escapes me, but he had some TV specials and he was kind of a funny guy. He was talking about people’s misconceptions about sugar and nutrition in general and he told this story about a woman he met who said she’d only use honey to sweeten things because it’s "natural". To which he retorted, "so is syphillis."
Local honey is a time honored treatment for pollen allergies. I can tell you, it really does help desensitize you if you eat some local honey every day.
Best tasting medicine I ever had.
Elise, are you trying to convince us that YOU are NORMAL?? [}:)]
I was horrified to learn that honeydew is secreted by little bugs, until I remmebered honey and silk. It’s amazing what is Ok if you were raised with it being normal.
I enjoy a little bee barf in my oatmeal with some cinnamon. Mmmmmm, bee barf!!!
Honey is the only food product that doesn’t harm anything- no plants or animals have to die for it, and both plants and animals benefit from it.
Don’t forget baklava in that list, CajunKing!
Some of my favorite foods are made with honey
Honey BBQ sauce
Honey Glazed chicken
Corn Bread drizzled with honey
honey glazed ham
Thank the creator i am not allergic to bee barf!!!!
with that logic, should we rethink the peanut industry, because a huge number of people are allergic to peanuts?
And what about seafood?
That just doesn’t make sense.

Maybe, just maybe those poor folks are being betrayed by their bodies for some perceived slight or indiscretion[:0]!
I firmly believe the only things that were not intended to be consumed by humans were things that are bigger than our head.
That’s why we invented cutlery…and a new day had dawned[;)]!
Honey has been a staple part of the human diet for thousands of years. It may be your preference not to ingest it, but to say it has not been nor is not a normal part of the human food base is not an accurate statement.
Honey is a wonderful ingredient in a huge number of foods we enjoy.
Now, beef barf IS disgusting.
I know a few people who are VERY allergic to bee barf (a.k.a. honey). Maybe, just maybe, those folk’s bodies are intelligent enough to be delivering a message . . . beef barf is NOT intended to be injested by the human body.
Just a thought. [xx(]
