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.


Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain. Pour bacon fat from skillet into a heatproof bowl. Crumble bacon.
In a large bowl, using the largest hole on a grater, grate corn from cob until you have about 1 cup. In a separate bowl lightly beat eggs and 3 tablespoons honey. Add to grated corn. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and pepper until combined. Mix in crumbled bacon.
Heat 1 tablespoon of bacon fat in a large skillet. Once hot, form fritters by dropping 1/8- cup measures of batter into pan. Cook until golden brown, a few minutes per side. You may have to do this in batches. Add more bacon fat to pan if necessary.
Serve immediately. Pass warmed honey to drizzle over fritters.
Yields: approximately 16 fritters
