How Honey is Made
To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.
Saute onions and garlic in large skillet in oil, until lightly browned. Add tomato paste, honey, 1 Tablespoon paprika and ginger. Stir well. Pour in vegetable broth and wine. Add bay leaves and thyme. Continue cooking for 10 minutes. Transfer to roasting pan.
Place brisket fat side up in pan. Sprinkle with remaining paprika. Cover and cook 1 hour.
Arrange vegetables around brisket. Cover and bake about 2 to 2-1/2 hours, or until brisket is tender. Transfer to cutting board. Skim fat from sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
Slice brisket thinly across the grain. Place on platter. Arrange vegetables around the sides and top with sauce. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
