Every time you see a honey bee fly by you should say, “thank you, pollinator!” Honey bees are responsible not just for making honey and wax but for pollinating crops like apples, broccoli, melons, blueberries, cherries and almonds. Both the crop quality and the yield would not be nearly as great without the intervention of honey bees.

Would you be surprised to learn that you can add the delicious golden goodness of honey to your beans? Just two teaspoons of honey adds a hint of sweetness to this earthy bean salad. Using Randall’s Mixed Beans, you can create a protein-packed meal that will keep you feeling full. Add some onions and a dash of vinegar, mix it all together and toss it in a bowl. Take the bowl outside, find some blooming flowers and marvel at the wonders of nature!
