  1. LOVED this. Made just as written, maenaitrd maybe 2 hours, out on counter another 30 minutes before grilling. Delicious. Will have to take out the honey for the Whole30, hope it’s still good!! Thanks for the recommendation, had awesome yellow and green beans sauteed in my cast iron skillet, and a 1 lb heirloom tomato with evoo and s&p for a salad (Old German, some of the best tomatoes I’ve ever grown). Yum!
