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.

Directions

Preheat oven to 300 °
In a saucepan boil water. Add rice and a pinch of salt. Simmer covered 10 to 12 minutes until water is absorbed. Set aside and let cool.
Coat a 9-inch square pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a bowl whisk together eggs, egg yolks, honey, salt, raisins and cooled rice. Whisk in milk and heavy cream. Pour into prepared pan.
Set custard pan in a larger baking pan and fill with hot water to reach half way up sides of custard pan. Bake for 1 hour and 40 minutes or until pudding is set and firm. Cool slightly on a rack. Cover and chill.
Remove custard from refrigerator once chilled. Pat top dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over top. Place custard pan in a baking dish filled with ice. Broil top of custard until golden. Watch closely. This will happen very quickly!
