Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


In a medium saucepan, mix together cranberries, onions and apple juice. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 5 minutes or until cranberries are soft. Put in a blender and puree until smooth. Pour mixture back into pan and add remaining ingredients. Simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat, cool, and refrigerate until ready to eat.
Yields: 1 cup.
