A few facts about honey
Aside from its exquisite taste, not many people know a lot about honey. So here are some tidbits that will come in handy when you’re cooking.
Honey is great in baking because it gives a delicious crispy coating and is great for keeping cakes and biscuits fresh and moist. It’s also sweeter than sugar; so much less is needed to achieve the same results with fewer calories.
If you’re stuck in the honey section at the supermarket and don’t know which variety to choose, it’s worth noting that the color shouldn’t affect your choice. But the darker the honey, the stronger the taste and the higher the antioxidant content.
