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.


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.
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.
