Description - The Backyard Beekeeper's Honey Handbook by Kim Flottum

A truly lush, radiant enthusiasts guide, The Backyard Beekeepers Honey Handbook goes beyond the scope of a cookbook to introduce to readers the literal cornucopia of honey varieties available. An intuitive follow-up to The Backyard Beekeeper, this book will presume beekeeping experience but reintroduce the basics. It is an insight into the practical, back-to-the-earth beekeeping lifestyle and well as the artisan cultivation of honey varieties. Supplementary support for this book lay in the fact that interest in tapping honeys holistic and whole-health potential dovetails nicely into the natural health and green movements. Also, honey as natural, lower-calorie sweetener has garnered positive PR by those working against the obesity epidemic.
