Honey Tips

The lighter the color of honey, the milder the flavor. Darker honeys usually have a bolder flavor.

When measuring honey for a recipe, put a little oil on a paper towel and coat the measuring spoon or cup. The honey will poor out easier.

Never give honey to infants under 1 year old, as honey may contain Clostridium botulinum spores to which infants have very little resistance. Once ingested, these spores may germinate and release deadly toxins. Once infants are a year or so old, they have developed some resistance to botulinum spores.

Honey contains 18 more calories per tablespoon than refined sugar.

One gallon of honey weighs about 11 pounds.  One pound of honey equals about 1 cup.

When substituting honey for sugar in a recipe, reduce the liquid by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey used.
