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.


In a medium saucepan bring wine, orange juice, honey, cinnamon, orange and lemon zest to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Pour into a bowl. Add peaches to wine and cool. Chill for up to 6 hours.
