It’s time for Recipe number two! Hope you and your friends and family enjoyed the appetizer we gave you last week because this week your in for another SWEET treat.
But first: Did you know that there are many types of Honey? If you didn’t, here is a list of some of the forms:
Comb Honey – Honey in its original form. In other words, honey inside of the honeycomb. The beeswax comb is edible!
Cut Comb – Liquid honey that has added chunks of the honey comb in the jar. This is also known as a liquid-cut comb combination.
Liquid Honey – Free of visible crystals, liquid honey is extracted from the honey comb by centrifugal force, gravity or straining. It is especially convenient for cooking and baking because it mixes easily into a variety of foods. *Most of the honey produced in the United States is sold in the liquid form.
Naturally Crystallized Honey – Honey in which part of the glucose content has spontaneously crystallized. It is safe to eat.
Whipped (or Cremed) Honey – While all honey will crystallize in time, whipped honey is brought to market in a crystallized state. The crystallization is controlled so that, at room temperature, the honey can be spread like butter or jelly. In many countries around the world, whipped honey is preferred to the liquid form especially at breakfast time.
