If Pooh adored regular 'Hunny' he would have savored the fruity taste of our Apple-Banana Hunny!

Fruited honey is basically fruit that is allowed to sit in honey in the refrigerator overnight so that you get a fruit flavored honey. This recipe is so easy and very adaptable to what you have on hand. You can really add any fruit that you have, fresh or canned. It is delicious served on Honey Oat Bread, on toast, graham crackers, or stirred into oatmeal.

  1. Cut desired fruits into 1/2-3/4 inch pieces, and layer in a pint-sized canning jar until full.
  2. Slowly pour honey over the fruit, allowing it to sink to the bottom. Continue until the jar is filled to the top with fruit and honey.
  3. Put the lid on the jar and place in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight. 

 This will keep in the refrigerator for about a week.
