Not in the fridge Sue. In a drawer. I've never stored jam in a fridge.

Some honeys are just corn syrup with no pollen in them everything is filtered out of it.

dont mind the bit about honey as medicine there is nothing to prove it is of any value irrespective of what Google says.

It's not just google, my mum worked on a dermatology ward where they used medical honey as 'spreads' on ulcers - worked very well.

Spiders webs also assist clotting and sphagnum moss is an antiseptic for wound dressing.

Let's get back to the point of all this: the supermarkets are beginning to respond to consumer concerns about the stuff sprayed onto their produce and the effects on wildlife and the wider environment.

YIPPEE!!!!

The long term consequences of such changes may be difficult to predict and will result in all sorts of changes to what we have become used to. But it is maybe the first brick knocked out of the agro-chemical wall. That, I'm my opinion, has to be good.

I agree it's a good thing, but surely we have to get back to what we WERE used to BEFORE agro-chemicals poisoned our food and bxxxxxed up our soil? You know, like we had been doing for the previous several thousand years!

I saw a programme tonight where they were making beer from discarded bread, TONNES of the stuff! We are told we can't feed people unless we go down the industrial/factory farm route, but where does that lead - mountains of
discarded food. There has to be another way.

I agree completely, Sue. It means re-directing the entire system, which is geared to shareholder profits and quick returns. I think it's called capitalism and it is ruining our planet.
