Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


In a large soup pot cook bacon until crisp. Add butter and onions. Saute over low heat about 10 minutes. Stir in broth and potatoes. Continue to cook until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
Mix in half-and-half, honey, corn and pepper. Cook for another 7 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally. Add the bell pepper and scallions. Cook an additional 5 minutes.
