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.


Puree mango in blender or food processor.
In a medium sized pan, heat one tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add garlic, jalapeno, and basil. Saute about one minute, until basil begins to wilt. Add chicken broth, soy sauce and honey. Stir occasionally and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 3 minutes. Slowly add mango puree, whisking thoroughly. Simmer gently and let sauce thicken, about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat broiler. Brush pork with remaining tablespoon of oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil about 5 minutes each side, until cooked through. Warm sauce and serve over pork chops.
