Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Preheat oven to 350°. Butter a 9×13-inch baking dish.
In a large mixing bowl, combine raisins, honey, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Set aside.
In a food processor or blender combine cheeses, sour cream, cornstarch and eggs. Blend well. Add to honey mixture along with grated apples. Meanwhile cook noodles in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain and add to cheese mixture. Toss until well combined.
Put into prepared pan and bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes.
