How do you eat your honey?
« on: October 09, 2007, 09:07:48 PM »
I like to eat mine on toasted English muffins with my coffee for breakfast. Maybe add a little butter. I  also love to mix honey and peanut butter and spread in on toast.  Outstanding with milk or coffee. Then again, it is difficult to beat it with my wife's homemade hot biscuits!

Could this be an answer to why I am  so thick?

This post makes me want a snack.

Lets see, by the spoon full, on toast with butter, but my favorite is crunchy peanut butter and honey mixed.

In my tea every morning.  I've also got a great recipe for:

Spicy Honey-Brushed Chicken Thighs
   
Skinless, boneless thighs cook quickly and are more flavorful than white meat, so they need fewer ingredients. Serve with garlic-roasted potato wedges and tossed salad.   

2 tsp    garlic powder   
2 tsp    chili powder   
1 tsp    salt   
1 tsp    ground cumin   
1 tsp    paprika   
1/2 tsp    ground red pepper   
8    skinless, boneless chicken thighs   
   Cooking spray   
6 Tbs    honey   
2 tsp    cider vinegar   
 
 
 
1 Preheat broiler.

2 Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken to bowl; toss to coat. Place chicken on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil chicken 5 minutes on each side.
 
3 Combine honey and vinegar in a small bowl, stirring well. Remove chicken from oven; brush 1/4 cup honey mixture on chicken. Broil 1 minute. Remove chicken from oven and turn over. Brush chicken with remaining honey mixture. Broil 1 additional minute or until chicken is done.
 
 
Servings: 4
Yield: 4 servings, serving size: 2 chicken thighs

I like it in my tea, I like it on biscuits.  My favorite way to put it on a biscuit is to take a box of cut comb honey, slice a thin, thin slice of it and spread it on a hot homemade biscuit - now that's the best.



This year I only made 16 boxes of this - next year I'm going for more - this is heavenly and a great way to fully appreciate every part of the bee's production - the wax is as good as the honey!

I like honey with a pungent cheese, usually a goat, sheep, cow's milk mix. My favorite way is just on toast with butter, you just can't beat that.

Bread, oatmeal, cornflakes. Here is the good one.
Take about 2 or 3 table spoons full, 1/4th cup of concentrated lemon juice and the rest water.
Put the water and juice in a cup and nuke to coffee hot+, then add and dissolve honey. Take 2 cups of this and call me tomorrow.

    Haven't found when I don't like it with what ever or by itself.  This years honey has more of a full flavor where last years 'drought' honey had a lighter fruity flavor.  They both have been great on all I've put it on.

rienbeau  I'm gonna use that recipe this Sunday.  Thanks!  It sounds great!
Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

I like this recipe:



See the whole thing here: http://flickr.com/photos/barl0w/608405670/in/set-72157600459236521/

But on toast and with peanut butter and bananas is also great!

My wife commented the other day as we were buying sugar for the bees, that we don't eat sugar.  We don't.  Even before I had bees we didn't.  I use honey on most everything with some occasional maple syrup mixed in.

My favorite is chicken dipped in honey.  I also like honey carrots.  A spoonful of honey every now and again is good too.   :-D

Along with all of the above, or at least most of the above (peanut butter?, really?), I like honey on top of vanilla yogurt. Also on top of a bowl of Wheat Chex.

Although the squeeze bottle directly on the toungue method is by far the most common.  8-)

Hot biscuits with butter.


The other weekend we had some freinds from canada visit and decided to roast some lamb.  Well little known to us, our friend is a honey junkie.  We pulled out the early season blackberry honey,,,,,,,,,,so light and delicate.  Well,,,, honey was flying all over the plates and then it hit the lamb.  OMG!  Talk about a complex flavor, soooooooooo good :-D . I never thought of using honey straight as a dipping sauce, move over mint jelly.

I wonder how mint honey would taste with lamb? :-P

I sure am glad I asked this question. I can't wait to try the honey chicken recipe with some vanilla ice cream or grapefruit for desert.

My dear little wife uses honey in all her canning of fruits .   The peaches and cherries are quite simply exquisite .  I also like it in tea with a pinch of ginger powder and a small piece of lemon rind .  That beverage really gets my circulation going in the morning , which is important where we live , because in the winter the temptation to hibernate is really something fierce.    ---Burl---

Yes, honey makes a great ice cream topping, or addition to any barbecue sauce, or dipping anything in...

On toast for breakfast nearly every morning--in homemade granola--recently on pancakes(as good or better than our own maple syrup).  Some people say they do not like honey.  Can you imagine??

I like mine in oatmeal, but I do eat it straight from the spoon on occasion.  :lol:
