Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.

Directions

Heat oil in a large pot. Add carrots, onion and garlic. Sauté 6 minutes or until onion is translucent. Add broth, honey and whole cloves. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until carrots are soft, about 20-30 minutes. Remove cloves and discard.
Using an immersion blender or regular blender, puree soup until smooth. If using a blender, return soup to pot. Mix in lemon juice and half and half. Heat soup before serving. Do not boil.
