Honey Tips

You Can Use Honey in Your Bakes and Cakes

Cakes made from a mix will be more moist and less crumbly if you add 2 tablespoons of honey to batter. Just reduce the baking temperature by 25 degrees to prevent over-browning.  Use honey in half the amount of sugar in a recipe. That is, if a cup of sugar is listed, use a half cup of honey to provide the same degree of sweetening. 

Honey Can Help Your Pets

Pets can have allergies too! Consult your veterinarian to see if honey will help them.

  • 2 pounds large carrots cut into 2 inch pieces (baby carrots will also work)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped
  • salt and pepper
  • parsley chopped for garnish

Directions: 

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a medium saucepan add the butter and cook over medium-high heat. Continue to whisk for a few minutes until the butter starts to become frothy and brown. Add the honey and garlic and remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl add the carrots and drizzle the sauce on top. Toss until coated and spread evenly on a large baking sheet.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until carrots are tender. (see note) Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.

NOTES
** I like to cover with foil for the first 10 minutes and then remove and let roast and brown for the last 10 minutes.
