Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Preheat oven to 300°.
In a large roasting pan or bottom of broiler pan, combine the first three ingredients.
In a medium saucepan heat brown sugar, butter and honey. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer and cook without stirring for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in baking soda. Pour over cereal mixture and stir to coat.
Bake for 15 minutes. Stir. Bake for 5 more minutes. Stir in dried fruit and spread mix on a large sheet of foil that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Cool.
Store in an airtight container or Ziploc bag.
