If you are keen to purchase honey, it is better to buy it ethcally, and use it sparingly. Bees go to a tremendous amount of effort to make honey, and beekeepers put in effort to supply it to you. In my view, honey should never be categorized as a cheap commodity.
In addition, did you know that in some countries, such as the US,
products labelled as honey, may not actually be pure honey: it may be honey combined with other food products, such as corn syrup. This means that whilst you thought you were getting a bargain, you were not buying what you thought you were buying.

Personally, I think it's great to try and support a local supplier if you can.
Should you decide to use a substitute for honey, such as marmalade, maple syrup or apricot jelly, there are suggestions within the recipes provided, and there is further information about alternatives to honey here.
