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.


Boil first 9 ingredients in a medium skillet. Add fish and simmer uncovered 5 minutes. Turn. Add gingersnaps and cook an additional 5 minutes until salmon flakes. Remove fish to warm plate. Boil liquid until it thickens, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste. While sauce is cooking, remove skin and debone fish. Strain sauce, reserving onions and raisins. Pour sauce over fish and garnish with the reserved onions and raisins. Serves 2.
