baking for the holidays with honey
+ why it's time to switch to honey full time
🐝 🐝 🐝
Honey has been used as food and for medicinal healing since the beginning of time, as it is an excellent and natural alternative to sugar and contains twice the nutritional value!
Raw and unfiltered honey has many great health benefits, like alleviating seasonal allergies, aiding in digestion, boosting the immune system, and promoting cardiovascular health.
Did you know that you can almost ALWAYS use honey as an alternative to sugar in recipes?
When baking/cooking with honey, there are a few characteristics that make it different than baking with sugar.
- Honey browns more quickly. So try baking honey-sweetened batters at a slightly lower temperature.
- Honey is naturally sweeter than sugar. Try using 1/2 to 2/3 cup honey for every cup of sugar in your recipe.
