How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


Serves: 4Cook leek, onion and garlic in olive oil over medium heat, until leek is softened, stirring often. Add potato, zucchini, broth and honey. Simmer covered until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.In a blender, puree in batches until mixture is very smooth. Transfer batches to a bowl, add half and half and stir in lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot, or to serve cold refrigerate at least 4 hours.
