Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Preheat oven to 400°. Cut four 12-inch lengths of aluminum foil. Spray top of foil with non-stick cooking spray.
Cut leeks and carrots into 1-inch diagonal slices. Divide evenly between foil. Sprinkle chopped mushrooms over leeks and carrots.
In a small bowl combine remaining ingredients until blended. Spoon evenly over vegetables. Fold foil over and crimp edges tightly making sealed packages. Place on a cookie sheet.
Bake 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
