Honey Ricpe for Butterscotch Bars

Submitted by Lowell Eller,

buy Gourmet Honey Now
1 cup butter or margarine, softened,
one third cup honey,
one teaspoon vanilla,
mix until smooth,

1 1/2 cups of all flour,
1 1/2 cups rolled oats,
one half teaspoon salt,
I mix in these dry before adding to the above mixture.

Add 1 cup butterscotch chips. (1 cup walnuts or pecan nuts can be added or substituted for butterscotch chips). Pour into 9 X 13 inch pan and bake in oven at 325° for about 20 minutes or until starting to brown on top.

I do a lot of these in a wood stove oven so temperature and timing are variable. The modern oven takes the finesse out of baking and turns it into a science. Thank goodness for most recipients!

Sourwood Honey

Monday, October 30th, 2006

Sourwood honey, Oxydendrum arboretum, is made from a beautiful tree. This same tree is used in landscaping for its wonderful fall red-orange colors. Sourwood honey has a spicy sweet taste, some anise aroma, which leaves a pleasant, lingering aftertaste. buy Gourmet Honey NowSourwood honey has a light color and is said to convert non-honey eaters into lovers of Sourwood honey.

The Sourwood tree is also known as the lilly-of-the-valley tree, growing to a height of 60 feet tall. Sourwood trees grow from Virginia to Florida blooming from late June to August. The bloom of the sourwood tree is a beautiful white bell-shaped flower that hangs in clusters 5-6 inches long.

There are several regions that boast of concentrations of sourwood large enough to produce a single source sourwood honey, they are: North Georgia, Western Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia. Many other areas may have sourwood honey for sale that has other honeys mixed with the sourwood.

Due to the short bloom season of sourwood trees, the production of sourwood honey is very challenging for the beekeeper. Bee keepers have to find a high concentration of sourwood trees, that enjoy large amounts of sunshine and adequate amounts of rainfall at the required time to produce adequate nectar for honey. The right temperature at the critical bloom time will influence the amount of nectar flow. Then the beekeeper must collect the fresh honey as soon as the sourwood finishes blooming in order to prevent other nectars from being brought in and mixed with the sourwood honey.

The hard work is worth the effort as sourwood makes the list of gourmet honeys. This culinary prize should be on your list. Due to real estate development, small farm sell offs and fires sourwood honey is rare and may soon only be available as a propagated crop.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread Recipe

Thursday, October 19th, 2006

Honey Ricpe for Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Submitted by Audrey D. Yordy,
Lebanon, Oregon
buy Gourmet Honey Now
6 cups scalded milk.
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cups cooked potatoes or oatmeal
eight eggs
two tablespoons of salt
¼ cup dry east (two tablespoons saf-instant)
1 cup warm water 108°- 112°
1 teaspoon honey
22-24 cups whole wheat flour

Pan size 7 3/8 X 3 5/8 x 2 ¼
This size pan helps the heavier whole-wheat dough rise and bake better. Makes 10 loaves. For smaller batches to accommodate your containers, lessen all ingredients equally.

Scald milk. With some milk in a blender, add potatoes or oatmeal. Without a blender use mashed potatoes. With more of the milk, blend in shortening, honey, eggs and salt.

This method will shorten your mixing time by cooling the milk to a temperature that will not kill the yeast, yet at the same time giving the yeast at warm temperature to grow quickly. Must be 112° or less.

Mix yeast with the one cup of warm water and 1 teaspoon honey in blender. Let yeast grow about 15 minutes. Add the yeast mixture to all the other liquids in the container. All liquids should equal 3 quarts. If not three quarts add enough warm water to make 3 quarts.

Add about 4 cups of flour at a time. When the bulk of the flour has been added, about 20 cups, watch consistency of dough carefully. Be careful not to add too much flour, making the dough too dry and heavy. The dough should not be wet looking, but sticky. Then, do not add more flour.

Bread dough can be mixed and kneaded in dough bucket or electric mixer. If no mechanics are available use the age-old method of hand kneading. Choose a kneading surface that is about the level of your wrists when your arms are hanging at your sides. Knead dough 10 minutes with any method.

Whole wheat flour takes a little time to soak up the moisture in the dough. This is why the dough can be left a little sticky at the last flour addition. Texture will improve in the rising. Let rise till double in bulk, about an hour. Punch down and let rise again. There’s really no need to find a warm place to let the dough rise if the ingredients were warm and you have a good active yeast. Not less than 70° though.

After the second rising the dough is ready to shape into loaves. Divide the whole lump in half, and each half into five equal parts. Flatten each part with your hands into a rectangle. Then roll up from the narrow end and pinch seam and ends. Turn the ends under and place the seam side down in the pan. Press the dough in the pan with your hand for a flat even surface.

Place pans with loaves on oven rack where you will be baking them. Turn oven on just to warm setting. Leave oven door open partially so in the oven will not get too warm. Rising in pans takes about 20 minutes or until the dough has doubled in size. When the dough has risen enough, shut the oven door and turn the oven to bake at 350°, for 40 minutes.

Remove the loaves from the oven, and when cool remove bread from pans. Store extra loaves in plastic bags in the freezer. A serrated edge knife works well to cut the bread. Enjoy your homemade whole wheat bread. For a soft crust, brush loaf with butter immediately after it comes out of the oven. For a crustier bread, bake five to 10 minutes longer.

For successful bread, remember:
1. Porous yeast bread is caused by over rising or baking at too low a temperature.
2. A crust that is dark and blisters is caused by under rising.
3. A yeast dough that does not rise is caused by over kneading, by old yeast, or softening the yeast in water that is too hot, thus killing the yeast.
4. Streaked bread is caused by under kneading, and by not kneading evenly.
5. Uneven baking is caused by using old dark pans, by putting too much dough in the pan, by crowding the oven shelf or by baking at too high a temperature.
