Honey Bees Need Water

To keep their hives strong, beekeepers must place them in locations that will provide abundant nectar sources as well as water.


Preheat oven to 350°. Cover pork loin in equal parts of seasonings for a dry rub. Sear each side using a cast-iron skillet. Place port in roasting pan, place sprigs of thyme on top. Cook uncovered 25 minutes leaving door CLOSED the entire 25 minutes. Turn off heat. Remove roast and set-aside until ready to serve. (Do not refrigerate.) Remove from oven and slice. Drizzle Burgundy sauce over pork. Pass remaining sauce.
For medium, roast an additional 15-20 minutes. To test, meat thermometer should read 140-150°.
Burgundy Sauce:
In a small heavy saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil, stirring until honey is dissolved. Boil until mixture is reduced to about 2 cups, stirring often.
