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.

In a large roasting pan or bottom of broiler pan, combine the first three ingredients.

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.
