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.


Serves: 4Whisk together first 4 ingredients. Brush peppers and eggplant slices with oil mixture. Grill several minutes turning often, until just cooked through. Slice peppers into strips. Brush cut side of each bread half with oil mixture. Grill cut side down for about 2 minutes. Spread a layer of pesto on toasted side of bread.
