5 Reasons to Stock Honey as a Survival Food
Just because honey is one of humanity’s oldest sweet treats, doesn’t mean it’s an outdated relic. It’s a top-choice food item for preppers and survivalists to stock in their emergency food stores. Here are five good reasons to join Pooh bear on the honey band wagon.
1. Honey doesn’t go bad. Yes, it may crystallize and get a little funny looking, but that just indicates it’s real honey. Warm up an old jar of honey under some hot water, and it reverts back to its viscous golden form. It might not last “forever,” but neither will we. Honey is naturally anti-microbial, and acts as its own preservative.
2. Honey can be used in wound care. While a dab of Neosporin might do a better job of healing cuts, scrapes, burns, and scratches, don’t rule out honey as a backup medicinal. The properties that make it antimicrobial can be very helpful in infection prevention. Honey also keeps the wound moist, which facilitates healing, too.
