Honey is valued in Africa as food, medicine and as an important economic activity. Since honey is of different flavors and compositions, however, such replacements may result in changes of flavor, consistency, and the quantities of honey. 

The color and flavor of honey vary depending on the bees nectar source lighter colored honeys are mild in flavor, while darker honeys are usually more robust in flavor.

Across the African continent, there are many ways of preparing African Rose Honey Syrup. Honey can replace sugar in almost any drink recipe but is most popular in flavoring teas.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My father and mother are historians of African culture and history and their influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
