I must admit I am not a great lover of honey.

I like to eat a teaspoon from the jar and eat loads when extracting but never eat it on toast etc.

I eat it every morning on my cereals. Don't like sugar much so honey does the trick.

5lbs?????????? a year????

Hell I eat more than that a month, is one very good reason I began to keep bees as I couldn't afford to keep myself in heather.

The kids (7) all have it on porridge every day. Plus the odd cake, plus marinades and sauces, plus toast of course. We get through a jar and a half a week easily, sometimes more = 80 to 100 lbs a year.
Honey was the reason I got into bees.

I never used to eat it. i think partly I didn't properly understand where it came from and that put me off. Whole family eat a lot more now.
