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.


Preheat oven to 350°.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add onions and mushrooms and saute until mushrooms begin to brown. Stir in spinach, honey, salt, pepper, nutmeg and bell pepper. Continue to cook until all liquid from spinach evaporates. Remove from heat.
In a large bowl whisk eggs until well beaten. Add cheeses and whisk until well combined. Stir in spinach mixture. Spoon into pie crust or on top of breadcrumbs in pie plate.
Bake about 40 minutes until center is set and pie is golden on top. Remove from oven and let stand about 10 minutes before cutting.
