This week on Why We Cook Chef Erica explores the link between illegal honey and the high holidays. Follow the trail of nasty secret Chinese honey as anti-biotics (meant to stop the spread of fungicide, which may also be in the Chinese honey) makes its way into honey, which is then repackaged and sent to other countries to avoid detection, or simply thinned out with corn syrup to become honey-flavored syrup. Then learn about honey's connection to the Jewish High Holidays, and why Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, means stuffed fish, tongue, and honey for everyone!
