Bee Raw

Skip to Main Content »

Raw honey is a chef’s secret weapon—golden crusts, caramelization, moist textures and complex notes are just a few of its hidden talents. Why honey instead of processed sugar? Besides the proven health benefits, each honey’s flavor varies with the flower from which it came. Imagine the subtle hint of sage in Sage Honey Stuffing, citrus in Orange Blossom Honey and Pheasant, and earthy Buckwheat Honey Pumpkin Pie. I’m hungry already.

Try these honey recipes, share them with friends and family—and enjoy them.

From my table to yours.—Zeke

Grilled Scallops with Summer Salsa

Recipes >

I love serving this these scallops in the summer for special guests. The beautiful part about it is you can mix up the diced vegetables in any seasonal assortment you wish, always keeping in mind of course an assortment of color. The scallops can just as easily be pan seared during the non-grilling season—and the salsa can be served on its own. No matter what you serve after these scallops as a main course your guests will leave distinctly impressed.
