Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


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.
