Ancient Egyptians baked honey cakes to placate their deities, and Olympic athletes downed swigs of honey to fuel their bodies on the way to championship glory. Over the centuries, honey has been used as a sweetener, a medicinal cure, and even as a weapon of war. Historically speaking, honey has always been, well, the bee's knees.
