Honey

 Honey Key facts Honey is usually classified according to the flowers it's made from; as well as culinary uses it's a natural antiseptic and can be used as an ointment or to soothe sore throats. It is also said that hay fever sufferers can find relief by eating honey made by bees local to their area.

Personal preference reigns here. I love Greek mountain honey, which stretches as you lift it on the spoon – it never seems too sweet, but is full of fragrance with caramel overtones. That said, whichever honey you prefer, it’s a storecupboard must.

For a quick snack, spread with good butter on freshly baked bread or spoon over thick Greek yoghurt.
