Bees use nectar from flowers to make honey. They store their honey in their hives in a waxy honeycomb structure that they also make. Honey is harvested from these honeycombs for human consumption. Typically the honey is separated from the honeycomb and the honeycomb is returned to the hive because it take the bees so much honey and effort to make the hives. Honey is used for sweetening thinks like tea, cocktails and more. It is also used for cooking, eg. honey glazed bbq wings, honey rhubarb chicken, etc.
