Honey Tips

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 425°. Whisk together buttermilk, egg, oil and honey. In another bowl combine dry ingredients. Pour in buttermilk mixture and the red and chili peppers. Stir lightly until dry ingredients are just moistened. Pour batter into a greased 8-inch square pan. Bake 20 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serves 4.
