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.


Combine first five ingredients in a small bowl. In another bowl combine flour, baking powder, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Stir vegetable mixture into dry mixture.
Heat 1/4 cup of olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. In batches, drop batter into oil in rounded tablespoonfuls adding additional oil if needed. Cook until brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to paper towels to drain. Serve immediately.
