"Honey can be used in some potions and it also tastes good on toast."

Honey is a sweet substance made by bees from the nectar in flowers. It is consumed by humans as a foodstuff, and can also be used by wizards as a potion ingredient, especially when made into honeywater.

Honey was a known component of Belch Powder;[1] 2 pounds of honey, in the apothecaries' system of weights, were required ingredients.[2]

Home Made Yummy Honey was a type of honey made by Molly Weasley.

The Glumbumble has a disastrous effect on honey produced if it infests a beehive.[3]
