Cooking With The Color Green, Honey From Hive To Cup

cucumber slices

Most if not all the customers that walk in who don't have experience, they expect mead to be very sweet, syrupy almost.

But Woody Drake of Brothers Drake Meadery in Columbus, Ohio prides himself on crushing that stereotype of mead. I visit him in the store and taste some fruity, floral and spicy honey wines.

Before that, Patrick Skahill of WNPR in Connecticut visits a beekeeper to get some hands-on experience.

It's a full day of cooking in the kitchen. Chef Daniel Orr combines some local honey and beets to create an amazingly versatile condiment.

And, our final trio of recipes all have one thing in common -- the color green. Chef Orr harvests some mint, tomatillos and cucumbers from his garden for a drink, a salsa and a soup.
