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.


Dip chicken in flour mixture. Shake off excess. Over medium heat, in a large heavy skillet, melt 2 Tablespoons butter. Sauté chicken for 5 minutes. Turn and add 2 Tablespoons shallots and honey. Sauté an additional 5 minutes, or until chicken is done. Transfer chicken to a plate. Add half and half to skillet and simmer about 4 minutes until thickened, stirring occasionally. Return chicken to skillet and simmer until heated through. In a medium skillet melt remaining 1 Tablespoon of butter. Add cantaloupe, grapes and remaining ½ Tablespoon of shallots. Sauté 1 minute. Spoon fruit over chicken and serve. Serves 4.
