Honey of a Sweet to Use

  • *It is great on oatmeal or other cereal.
  • It is a natural for sweetening fresh fruit.
  • Put it on pancakes and waffles.
  • Don’t forget it as a chicken dip or for glazing baked chicken or ham. 

  • Honey helps baked goods retain moisture
    and retards spoilage so cookies and
           cakes stay fresh longer.

Baking with Honey.

1.  Substitute honey for sugar cup for cup in almost any recipe.

2.  Reduce  liquids by 1/4 cup per cup of honey used and decrease oven temperature by 25 degrees as honey scorches easily.

3. Use air-layer cooking sheets when possible.

4.  If the recipe does not call for extra liquids, a small amount of flour can be added to compensate for the extra liquid.

 5.  When measuring honey, moisten the cup or spoon with oil or melted butter before measuring honey.
