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.


Combine all sauce ingredients in a bowl, whisk well and set aside.
Place wok or large skillet over high heat. Add 3 tablespoons of oil. When oil is heated, place noodles in wok. Cook, without stirring, for 5 minutes on each side, until noodles form a golden brown pancake. Remove to a warm serving platter. Add remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to the wok. Stir fry the bok choy for 1 minute. Add bamboo shoots and mushrooms and cook until just heated through. Whisk sauce again and pour over vegetables. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened. Top the noodle pancake with the vegetables.
