A sweet, sticky treat
Honey is a sweet and viscous substance produced by some varieties of bees and wasps. Created by the bees from either nectar or honeydew, its sweetness is derived from a mixture of fructose and glucose. For the people of Etrea, honey is commonly used for sustenance, either by itself or as a component of - or to enhance - certain dishes. It also is widely used across the world for different medicinal and ritual purposes. In some cultures, bees have been semi-domesticated in order to provide a stable and reliable source of honey. Other cultures rely only on collection from wild hives.
