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.


Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add shallots and garlic. Sauté for 1 minute. Add tomatoes and honey. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and simmer for another 30 minutes. Let cool and then process in batches in blender until soup is smooth. Chill until very cold.
Yields: approximately 7 cups
