Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


Preheat oven to 400°. Grease muffin tins. In a bowl, mix together flour, bran cereal, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. In a small bowl, beat egg slightly. Stir in milk, honey and oil. Add to flour mixture. Stir until just moistened. Fold in cherries. Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full and bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. This batter can be prepared a day ahead. Store, covered in refrigerator, until ready to use. Yield: 12 muffins.
