Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Preheat oven to 350°. Toast cashews in oven for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned. In a large skillet, sauté garlic in oil until golden. Add scallions and pepper. Sauté 2 minutes. Stir in honey and soy sauce and bring to a boil. Whisk in cornstarch. Continue cooking and whisking until thickened. Remove from heat. Cook the green beans in boiling water until crisp tender. Drain. Transfer beans to a large bowl and cover with the sauce. Toss. Sprinkle with toasted cashews. Serves 6-8.
