HONEY

Baked items with a bit of honey hold the moisture better, resulting in baked goods that stay fresher longer. The reason why baked goods stay fresher longer, is become honey retains water, another words it is hygroscopic.

The flavor that honey brings to a recipe depends on the source of nectar, eg; a honey bee collecting nectar from an apple flower. The nectar source in a given area depends on the type of vegetation present.
