This book isn't just a guide to beekeeping or a honey cookbook
it's both. No other book on the market provides an in-depth review
of beekeeping and explains what honey is good for you and how to
use it. Beautifully illustrated, Complete and Easy Guide to Beekeeping
is perfect for the health conscious person who wants to sweeten
up their life by saying no to processed sugars and yes to eating
organic, healthy food. This book is the complete 'honey bee' resource
with general information on bees; a how-to guide to the art of
beekeeping and how to set up, care for and harvest your own hives.
It also includes tons of fun facts and projects that are beerelated.
The second half of the book is the complete guide to honey. It
reviews the different types of honey and their health effects and
provides hundreds of ideas for using honey in recipes, cosmetically
in facemasks and shampoos, and for medicinal uses.
No other illustrated reference guide combines hands-on tips,
advice and beautiful photography for the amateur beekeeper.
Covers every topic from beekeeping to cooking with honey as well
as using honey for medicinal and spa treatments.
The perfect book for anyone looking to rid their lives of processed
sugars in favour of natural sweetener.
