Summer Blend Collection
sweet sweet summertime.
Enjoy three sweet picks of summer: cherries, raspberries, and lemons. The Summer Blends Variety Pack brings out the tastes of summer. These three blends go great in lemonade, hot beverages, or drizzled over grilled meats.
Honey Buttercream Icing
1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
1/3 cup “plus” an additional 2 Tbsp. of Tu-Bees Gourmet Honey (any flavour)
4-5 cups powdered sugar (icing sugar)
In a stand mixer, cream together the butter and honey for 2 minutes.
Add 2 cups of the powdered sugar. Start on low speed, beat until smooth and creamy.
Gradually add the remaining sugar (1 cup at a time).
Beat well after each addition until the icing is thick enough for spreading consistency.
Use milk to thin out frosting to reach desired consistency.
For 12 - 24 meatballs (max. 2 (two) pounds of ground beef)
1/2 cup raspberries puree
1/3 cup Tu-Bees Raspberry Gourmet Honey
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 and 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon fresh ginger (grated or minced)
1 teaspoon cornstarch
sliced green onions, for garnish
Spray your crock-pot with nonstick spray.
In a bowl, combine the pureed raspberries, Tu-Bees Raspberry Gourmet Honey, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, cornstarch, and red pepper flakes. Blend them together, using a whisk, to make sure the cornstarch does not become lumpy. Set aside 1/2 cup to use later.
Make meatballs and lay them out in layers in the slow cooker. Pour the raspberry sauce over ever layer that you add.
Cover and cook on low for 5 hours, or on high for 2 and 1/2 hours.
Remove the lid to add the ginger and the 1/2 cup of reserved sauce.
Cook on high for another 15-20 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly.
Garnish with green onions to serve as an hors d'oeuvre or on a bed of rice with stir fried matchstick vegetables.
