The perfect addition to teatime or a meal with friends and family, honey is a panty staple in many households. Fortified with herbs and spices, infused honey can really take any recipe, or ritual, to the next level. Below are 6 amazing ways I love to use infused honey.
Sauces + Glazes
Whether looking for a savory, sweet, or tangy taste, add a bit of honey to salad dressing, simmering sauces, glazes or dips for dessert. The perfect addition to balance out flavors to any meal, drizzle honey on protein or vegetables to spruce it up.
While honey is most popularly used in tea, swirl infused honey into a cup of coffee, tea or cocktails to make for a delightful treat. Get creative with it in the form of a latte, iced tea, or Moscow mule.
Jams + Jellies
Substitute sugar for honey to naturally sweeten your favorite jam or jelly recipe. Combining honey with your fruit and herb jams and jellies can really take bread or pastries to the next level.
Absolutely amazing baked into honey butter biscuits, on muffins, or drizzled on cornbread, honey is a key ingredient to heighten already comforting baked goods.
Naturally anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial honey is amazing to calm and tone skin. In addition to being a natural humectant (meaning it draws moisture from the air to your skin), it helps to hydrate skin as well as soothe irritated skin.
The emollience of honey also helps to increase shine, strengthen and protect hair, as well as improve the overall appearance.
The antioxidants in honey help to combat scalp issues like dandruff and psoriasis, while its humectant nature and nutrients help to strengthen hair follicles, which may help prevent excessive shedding and baldness.
