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.


In a heavy saucepan combine first 5 ingredients. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Cook without stirring about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
Add nuts and stir about 2 minutes. Syrup will become cloudy.
Line 2 cookies with waxed paper. Divide nut mixture between cookie sheets. Using a fork, working quickly, separate nuts and allow to cool.
