How Honey Is Created

Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.


Preheat oven to 400°. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin.
In a mixing bowl beat together butter and honey. Add eggs to mixture and beat well. Blend in buttermilk.
In a separate bowl combine flour, baking soda and lemon zest. Add wet ingredients to flour mixture. Mix until flour is moistened. Stir in raisins.
Fill muffin cups ¾ full. Bake for about 17 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
