Cooking with Honey

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

Cooking with honey is as simple as addition. Pastries cookies in our cakes made with gourmet honey have improved keeping qualities as the honey tends to keep the pastry from drying out. This is very important if you’re going to be baking in advance of a holiday.buy Gourmet Honey Now

Use 1 teaspoon baking soda for every cup of honey used when baking. This helps to neutralize honey’s natural acidity.

To measure honey, moisten the cup or spoon with olive oil before measuring the honey.

It is best to lower the bakery temperature of the oven about 25° to prevent honey baked goods from over browning.

Honey is made of simple sugars that are easy to digest. Because they are in this form they can be absorbed directly into the body. Four fifths of honey, by weight, is in the form of simple sugar. The remaining 1/5 is water, small amounts of protein, vitamins and minerals.

Honey Cherry Pie filling Ingredients:

    1 pint sour red cherries
    ¾ cup Star Thistle Honey I don’t substitute
    4 teaspoons cornstarch
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    1 Tablespoon butter
    ¼ teaspoon almond extract

Making a cherry pie without the “can of pie filling” seems to be a lost art. I tell my girls that making a honey cherry pie is simple, quick and the results are “no comparison!” I can cherries so I use a pint of of my canned sour cherries, drain the juice from the cherries and save the juice. In a saucepan, combine cherry juice, cornstarch, star thistle honey, (I can’t say enough about this wonderful star thistle honey, it is my favorite to eat and I bake with it when I want delicate taste that does not overcome my recipe!) and salt. Stir over medium heat until liquid is clear. Now add almond extract and butter, stir and then add the cherries. Pour the complete honey cherry pie filling into your favorite unbaked 9″ pie shell. Place your top crust and affix, remember to pierce the top crust for vents with fork or your custom designs. Place the pie in a preheated oven of 400 degrees F. and bake until crust is golden/brown.

We use lots of honey and our family.

    • One tablespoon honey mixed in one pint of milk and frozen for ice block treats
    • A large tablespoon of honey for each pot of soup.
    • Droplets of honey, on the babies pacifier.
    • Honey applied directly to burns, sores and bites,
    • Plant cuttings for rooting dipped in honey to prevent rot.
    • Honey for bee stings
    • Honey for sweetener in herbal tea, black tea and green tea.
    • Lemon and honey drinks, hot for colds or just a hot drink before going to bed; cold for refreshing summer drink.
    • Equal quantities of honey and vinegar for that persistent cough, especially at night also to help one sleep on those restless nights.
    • Honey, butter and toast for breakfast.
    • I get most proved especially apple slices in a solution of honey and water before drying in the dehydrator.

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

Honey can be used in the making of jelly and jams by using half honey and have sugar in the usual proportions. If you are making gourmet jelly and jam then DO NOT USE any ole honey. Use a premium gourmet honey. Start as usual by boiling the fruit, but with a little less water than when using all sugar.buy Gourmet Honey Now Be sure to cook all the skins in cores until every bit of the jelly substance has been extracted. Now strain as usual. bring strained juice to a boil and boil for 10 minutes. Add the sugar and bring to a boiling point again. Then add the honey and cook until the jelly will set when tested.

Jams using Honey instead of Sugar

Crush the fruit slightly, allow three fourths cup of honey to a cup full of fruit. Add half the honey to the fruit. Stir well and allowed to stand for an hour. Then heat slowly stirring constantly. Boil for 10 minutes or until the fruit is soft. Then add the remainder on the honey, stir well, and cook until the jam was set when tested. Boil rapidly after adding the remainder of the honey.

If the fruit mix looks dry, use your discretion regarding adding a little water, consider the condition of the fruit and remember honey itself is 20% water.
