pineapple honey and more...
1 Pt. Water
1 1/2 Pineapples, large
3 pts. sugar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Directions: boil water & sugar, skim-add pineapple and boil 25 minutes
Apricot Honey Butter
3 c Dried apricots (2 lbs)
2 tb Grated lemon zest
1/2 c Fresh lemon juice
1/2 c Honey
3 tb Finely chopped crystallized
In a heavy saucepan, combine apricots, lemon zest, 1/4 cup lemon juice and 2 cups water.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the apricots are soft.
Transfer the apricots and the cooking liquid to a food processor and puree until smooth. Return to the saucepan, along with honey and the remaining 1/4 cup lemon juice.
Simmer, stirring often, until very thick, about 1 hour. Stir in crystallized ginger and let cool. (The butter can be stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for
up to 6 months.)
APRICOT HONEY SYRUP
1/2 pound dried apricots
3 cups honey
3 cups simple sugar syrup
Soak the apricots in water overnight.
Drain off water. Purée apricots. Add honey and syrup. Store in refrigerator.
Warm on stove or in microwave. Put into little pitchers and hold each in oven until ready to serve.

4 cups sugar to 2 cups water. Bring to a boil. Boil gently without stirring for 10 minutes. Allow to cool.
Yields 1 to 1 1/2 quarts.
Blueberry Honey Sauce
1/2 cup honey
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

RASPBERRY MINT HONEY
4 cups orange blossom or clover honey
2 cups well-drained canned red raspberries
4 ounces fresh mint leaves
In a 3- to 4-quart pan combine all ingredients over medium high heat. Stir mixture occasionally until honey simmers, about 5 minutes. Simmer 20 minutes.
Pour through a fine strainer and discard pulp and mint leaves. Cool and package in clean, decorative 4 to 12 ounce jars. Decorate with a fabric top and add a wooden honey server. This is excellent as a spread for scones, crumpets or English muffins. Store at room temperature up to a month

Give it clean water. And feed it fresh air.
Grow a forest. Protect it from axes that hack.
Then the Lorax and all his friends may come back."
