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.


Place raisins in a small bowl. Cover with warm water. Set aside.
Pour honey into a small skillet. Place over medium heat and cook, swirling occasionally, until honey turns golden brown, about 5 minutes. Add raisins with the water, butter and rum. Continue cooking 5-8 more minutes until sauce just begins to thicken, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, let cool slightly.
Scoop ice cream into 4 bowls. Arrange 4 banana slices on top of each. Spoon warm raisin sauce over bananas and ice cream.
