Honey Glaze for Beets

Abbey Cooks

This is a modification of a recipe found on the packaging of a pack of butter from Organic Valley. We use Monastery Creamed Honey instead of maple syrup and our own home grown herbs.

Mix together in a large skillet:

2 TBS balsamic vinegar
2 heaping TBS Orange flavored Creamed Honey
2 TBS Salted Butter

Applesauce

Abbey Cooks

Now that it's Autumn, it's time to start cooking again at the monastery. Sr Veronique always produces wonderful preserves and applesauce.

A Visit to the Monastery

Abbey Cooks

In January my husband came home from the supermarket with a surprise jar of lemon flavored Monastery Creamed Honey that he had spied on the shelf. A delicate hint of lemon in the honey gives it a twist of subtle perfection that makes morning toast and tea pure pleasure! I have raved about its delights to all who would listen.
My husband, a quiet observer to my great joy of spreading honey on my toast or using it to add a gentle touch of lemon to my tea, clearly understood my deep appreciation for this wonderful cr
