Honey Tips

How Honey Is Created

Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.


Heat oil in a large skillet. Sprinkle chops with thyme, and marjoram and salt and pepper. Add to hot olive oil and cook 6-8 minutes per side until just no longer pink inside. Remove to a platter, cover with foil to keep warm.
Stir butter into the same skillet. Add apple and onion. Sauté 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook 1 minute, stirring. Mix in honey and mustard and then wine, half and half and curry powder. Let simmer about 5 minutes until apples are tender. Return pork chops to sauce and heat.
To serve, place chops on a platter and top with sauce. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
