Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Cut cooked beets in half and slice into ΒΌ-inch thick slices. Sprinkle with chives, parsley and walnuts.
In a small bowl whisk together dressing ingredients. Pour over beets and toss. Set aside at room temperature for 1-2 hours to allow flavors to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
