Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Cut one cucumber into chunks and put into blender container. Finely dice the second cucumber and set aside.
Add remaining ingredients to blender. Blend until smooth. Pour liquid into a bowl. Stir in diced cucumber pieces. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until very cold, about two hours. Top each serving with a sprinkle of the chopped fresh dill.
