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.


In a large pot, boil potatoes and garlic in water about 10 minutes.
Remove course stems from broccoli, cut into flowerets. Peel and thinly slice remaining sterms. Add to potatoes and garlic along with the honey and cook about 5 minutes or until broccoli is just tender.
Brush bread with olive oil and sprinkle tops with half of the Parmesan. Toast in broiler until cheese turns golden brown.
Add remaining Parmesan to soup. Ladle into bowls, top with toasted French bread slices.
