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.

Directions

Place olive oil and stock in a medium size pot. Bring to a boil. Add cous cous and stir. Remove from heat, cover, and let sit for 5 minutes. Remove cover and fluff gently with a fork. Transfer cous cous to a bowl. Mix in scallions, parsley, pine nuts, cucumbers, celery, and currants. Set aside.
Dressing:
In medium sized bowl, whisk together lemon juice, honey and cinnamon. Drizzle in olive oil and whisk until combined. Pour over cous cous and toss. Serve on a bed of lettuce.
