...is a big deal in New Zealand. It's made by bees ( nah) who feed on the flowers of the Manuka and Kanuka trees. They're the Kiwi version of the tea tree.
Manuka Honey has amazing antibacterial properties, there are all sorts of things it's thought to be good for, but basically we like it on our toast or in yoghurt!
Lloyd was lucky enough to be given a huge jar of the stuff - I say lucky enough cos it's very expensive and we've only ever had teeny tiny jars before.
I need some honey to cheer me up - we're having a new drain dug at the moment - and I can't fault the digger driver - he's lovely, very skilled and digging as neatly as you can dig a huge, long, 2 foot deep, trench through pristine green grass and a lovely orchard. I just keep telling myself it'll all grow again...sometime.
