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.


Preheat oven to 350°.
Rinse hens and pat dry. Clean cavity and discard giblets. Carefully separate the skin from the flesh of the birds.
In a small bowl, whisk together honey, lime juice and rosemary. Spread mixture under the skin of hens.
Spray roasting pan with non-stick cooking spray. Place hens in pan and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from oven and arrange chopped fruit around hens. Bake an additional 30 minutes.
Serve hens garnished with baked fruit.
