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.


In a small bowl, combine the first 4 ingredients and blend until cornstarch dissolves. Set aside.
In a non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sear beef and remove from pan. Set aside.
Saute onion and garlic until lightly browned. Add broccoli, cauliflower, bell pepper and stir-fry until crisp-tender, about 4-5 minutes.
Re-stir cornstarch mixture and pour over stir-fry. Add beef, peanuts, red pepper flakes and black pepper. Stir-fry until sauce thickens and beef is heated through, about 2-3 minutes. If sauce is evaporating too quickly, reduce heat.
