Honey Is Magic

In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.


Roast beets (covered in a roasting pan with olive oil, salt, and pepper) for 2 hours on 325 until fork tender. Allow to cool
Slice thick and cut out with a petite heart-shaped cookie cutter, and set aside.
Slice bread on an angle, brush with olive oil, and toast on low heat for 5-7 mins or until crunchy
Spread a thin layer of strawberry preserves on the “crostini” and then spoon on a thick layer of ricotta cheese.
Arrange greens atop ricotta. Gently place the beet hearts on the crostini’s and drizzle generously with Golden Blossom Honey!
