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.


Sauté garlic in olive oil until lightly browned. Add eggplant and sauté for 5 minutes. Add zucchini and mushroom slices. Cook for 5 minutes more.
