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.


Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium saucepan combine butter, honey and cinnamon. Heat until butter is melted and stir until ingredients are well combined. Remove from heat. Stir in oats. Spoon onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, stirring once. Remove from oven and stir in almonds and coconut. Return to oven and bake for another 5-10 minutes until granola is just beginning to brown, stirring several times.
Remove from oven. Toss with dried fruit. Let cool to crisp. Store in a zip lock bag or airtight container.
Yields: approx. 4 cups
