Honey Tips

How Honey Is Created

Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.


Melt butter in a large skillet. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Add to skillet and brown over medium heat 8-10 minutes, turning often.
Meanwhile in a saucepan combine cranberries, honey, onion, orange juice, cinnamon and ginger. Bring to a boil. Simmer 5 minutes over a low heat. Pour into skillet over browned thighs. Cover and simmer on low 10 minutes, spoon sauce over chicken occasionally.
