7 Ways With Honey
The next time you spoon honey into your cup of tea, think outside the mug and try using it in a main dish or side. Distinctly different than other sweeteners, honey adds a unique flavor buzz and subtle sweetness to everything from appetizers to baked goods to Asian-style sauces.

To use honey in place of 1 cup of sugar, use 2 tablespoons less honey, add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and reduce another liquid in the recipe by 3 tablespoons. The flavor and texture will not be quite the same, but you may like your new version better than the original recipe! Start with a mild flavored honey, and be aware that because of its viscous nature, honey will make your baked goods more moist and dense.
