I met a Jewish Doctor

I met a Jewish Doctor from a small town in Virginia.

He lives in a rural setting on 120 acres.

Each of three children has a "job."

One child raises vegetables.

One child tends chickens.

And one child, Rachel, makes honey --- called "Rachel's Honey."

He told me that honey is the only food product coming from an insect --- that is kosher.

Why? I assume because it is so healthy.

(Insert picture of a big bee.)

Honey is kosher because it is not excreted from a bee or produced inside the bee. Honey is actually produced outside the body of the bee and therefore not the "product of" a non-kosher animal, like pig's milk would be, for example.
