How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Preheat oven to 325&deg.
In medium saucepan heat butter, honey, corn syrup and sugar until butter melts. Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes.
In a large bowl whisk eggs and bourbon until well blended. Slowly add warm (not hot) honey mixture, whisking constantly. Stir in pecans.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over bottom of piecrust. Pour pecan filling into crust. Bake 1 hr and 25 minutes, or just until center is set. Remove to rack to cool. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
