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 325°. Line a roasting pan with foil sprayed with vegetable spray.
Pound turkey breast to flatten. Place turkey in a sturdy, sealable plastic bag. Mix all marinade ingredients together and pour into bag with turkey.
Reseal tightly and allow to marinate in refrigerator at least 6 hours or overnight.
Place marinated turkey breast on rack in prepared pan. Roast for approximately 2 hours, or until meat thermometer inserted in thickest part registers 180°. If any marinade remains in bag, use to baste turkey occasionally during roasting.
