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.


Combine cranberry juice and honey in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring. Add remaining ingredients. Return to a boil and simmer until cranberries begin to pop and mixture thickens, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, cool and then refrigerate. Spread will thicken more when chilled.
