The Italian word for honey is “miele” and it originates from the Latin word melit (sweet). For ages honey was the only concentrated sweet available food. The first traces of human built bee hives go back to VI century B.C. For thousands of years’ honey was the main sweetener used by humanity. Honeydew is a sugary sticky substance that forms on vegetation and in particular on tree leaves, close to colonies of plant sucking insects such as aphids that feed on the plant’s sap.
