Honey Tips

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods

Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.


Heat oil in a large saucepan. Add carrots, potatoes, onion, celery, and garlic. Sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add broth, honey, split peas and bay leaf. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer over low for 40 – 50 minutes or until vegetables and peas are tender. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
