Honey Tips

Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly coat an 11-inch tart pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Place flour, sugar, salt and butter pieces in a food processor. Pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Slowly add water, pulsing processor on and off until mixture forms moist clumps. Remove dough, form into a ball. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Roll dough out on a floured surface. Place in tart pan. Using your fingers press onto bottom and up sides of pan.
Arrange nectarine slices in concentric circles on crust interspersing with plum slices. Drizzle 4 tablespoons of honey over the fruit. Bake 10 minutes. Lower temperature to 350° and continue baking about 30-40 minutes until fruit is tender and crust is golden. Remove to a rack to cool. Once cool brush top of fruit with warmed honey.
