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.


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.
