Substituting Honey for Sugar October 20 2014
Honey is a fabulous substitute for sugar. We use it for everything! It does change the cooking process slightly, so follow these tips for successful recipes.
- Replace 1 cup of sugar with 3/4 cup of honey. Reduce the liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup. Add a pinch of baking soda to reduce the acidity of the honey.
- Beat candies longer and wrap them tightly to help keep the honey from absorbing moisture.
- Cook jams and jellies at a higher temperature.
- When baking, lower the oven temperature by 25° F. to prevent over-browning.
Honey will keep your foods moister than sugar does, which is just another reason why we love this wonderful substitution for baking specifically!
We also love honey in:
- Salad Dressings
- Roasted Veggies
- Grilled Meats
- Ice Cream Topper
- Cheese Platters (YUM!)
