I started eating honey back in the 1970’s. There was a nutritional trend that encouraged people to eat honey and avoid refined sugars. A lot of my married friends wives bought honey cookbooks to learn how to substitute honey for white sugar in recipes. My family and I rarely buy white sugar. Once in awhile we’ll get brown sugar for baking cookies. Otherwise, we use honey for almost everything.
I enjoy eating buttered toast with honey as a desert after dinner. Or, sometimes I’ll mix some peanut butter and honey together and eat on toast for desert.
I know Mexicans share my love of honey with bread. I often get sopapillas and honey at my local Mexican restaurant for desert.
I sweeten hot tea, oatmeal, cream of wheat with a spoonful of honey. It’s a good topping on vanilla ice cream.
Right now we’re enjoying some wild honey from a family friend’s hives. Wild honey has a much better taste than the standard clover honey you get at the grocery store.
Do you eat honey? What’s your favorite way?
