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.


Over medium heat melt the butter then blend in the brown sugar. Add the next 3 ingredients, stirring constantly until mixture boils. Cook uncovered and without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from burner and add baking soda and vanilla. Pour warm mixture over popcorn and toss until coated.
Spread popcorn out on two cookie sheets and bake at 250° for one hour. Every 15 minutes stir the popcorn to keep it from burning. Allow to cool.
