How Honey Is Created

Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.


Melt butter in a medium sized skillet. Stir in cayenne, cinnamon, honey and salt, bring to a boil. Add nuts. Continue cooking and stirring until liquid is mostly gone and nuts are well coated and begin to brown, about 6-7 minutes. Pour onto a large sheet of foil that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Let cool, breaking nuts into bite-sized pieces. (Allow pan to sit in hot soapy water to clean. The candied honey will wash right out.)
