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.


Line bottom and sides of tart pan with crust. Prick with a fork. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes, or until crust is golden. Remove from oven. Place cheese slices over bottom of crust. Arrange tomato slices on top of cheese. Drizzle honey over tomatoes. Sprinkle with herbs and then Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes until cheese melts and Parmesan looks golden. Cool slightly before cutting. Serves 4.
