Jar of honey

Honey

Clover and orange blossoms, even cactus and bamboo—the source of the nectar from which bees make honey is what determines its flavor, and there are more than 300 varieties in the United States alone.
Honeydew

Honeydew Melon

Exceedingly juicy and sweet, honeydews have a slightly oval, football shape and apple-green flesh that’s high in vitamins A and C.
Horseradish

Horseradish

The spicy hot 6- to 12-inch root of the horseradish plant is used in sauces accompanying meat dishes. Prepared horseradish, which has been chopped and steeped in vinegar (white) or beet juice (red), provides the kick in Bloody Marys and condiments like cocktail sauce.
