Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Meatballs: Combine all meatball ingredients. Mix lightly. Shape into small balls. In an ungreased microwave-safe casserole, arrange meatballs in a single layer. Microwave uncovered on HIGH for 4 minutes. Add pineapple chunks to meatballs. Let stand while preparing the sauce. Sauce: Combine all sauce ingredients including reserved pineapple liquid. In a medium microwave-safe casserole, microwave uncovered on HIGH for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring several times. Add sauce to meatballs. Microwave until heated through (about 4 minutes). Serves: 4-6 (Main Course) or 8-10 (Appetizer).
