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.


Trim leeks of outer leaves leaving white and pale parts only. Halve each leek lengthwise. Run under cold water to clean out any dirt. Slice cleaned leeks on a diagonal into 1/4 inch thick slices.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add leeks and saute until they begin to brown. Stir in remaining ingredients. Simmer, stirring until thickened about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
