Honey Tips

Honey Flavors and Colors

Honey has different flavors and colors, depending on the location and kinds of flowers the bees visit. Climatic conditions of the area also influence its flavor and color.


Sprinkle salt over diced cucumber and drain in colander about 15 minutes. Heat oil over medium high heat in a large frying pan. Cook onion until just brown. Reduce heat to medium. Add garlic and cucumbers and cook for 3 minutes. Add roasted pepper, spices, honey and vinegar. Cook until liquid begins to caramelize, about 5 minutes. Place in a bowl. Using the same pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Cook fish steaks about 5 minutes on each side, or until done. Serve salsa over fish.
