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.


Cut broccoli into bite size pieces and microwave or steam until tender but crisp. Drain and rinse with cold water and set aside. In a skillet cook bacon until well done. Drain fat and add onion, 2 tablespoons vinegar and honey. Bring to a boil for 3-4 minutes to reduce liquid. Remove from heat and add mushrooms, broccoli and remaining vinegar. Toss until coated and serve warm.
Serves 4.
