Honey Tips

Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook slowly until all vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Cool slightly. Puree until smooth in a blender. Return to pot, reheat, add vinegar and honey. Garnish with yogurt, if desired. Serve hot or cold. Serves 6-8.
