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.


Heat the oil in a large skillet. When very hot, add eggplant and toss to coat with the oil. Lower heat to medium. Cook quickly until the eggplant begins to color. Remove and drain on paper towels. Add more oil to the skillet if necessary and cook onion and peppers until soft. Stir in the tomatoes and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Return eggplant to pan and stir in honey, vinegar, and capers. Cook over low heat until eggplant is soft. Season with salt and pepper. Serve hot or at room temperature. Serves 4.
