Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


In a medium saucepan combine dried fruits, brandy and honey. Bring to a simmer and cook over a low heat for several minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat. Stir in wine and refrigerate up to 24-48 hours to allow flavors to blend.
To serve, strain out dried fruit, gently warm wine (do not simmer or boil). Reserve fruit for another use.
