Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


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.
