Endives (chicory) braised in honey

These wonderful endives (or chicory) braised in honey are very slightly bitter and a bit caramelized! They are a great side dish for scallops and they are very easy to make! Try them as a light and very tasty side dish even with veal or poultry!

Also available in different formats :-)
