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.


Place almonds and water into a blender. Blend on high for 5 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve or cheesecloth to remove any almond particles. Pour milk into a medium saucepan, add honey and bring to a boil. Remove from heat to cool. Stir in almond extract. Refrigerate until very cold. (Milk thickens as it cools.)
To serve, pour desired amount into glass and dust with a little cinnamon or nutmeg.
