Honey is one of the most versatile ingredients found and harvested worldwide. Of course, we all know that honey is a product of bees, but its uses in the kitchen are vast, different, and full of flavour.
Honey is known for its sweet taste, used in baking, international cuisine, and even when we get sore throats. But think outside the square or the hive for innovative ways to add honey to the menu.
Honey Cheesecake is a great way to get corresponding flavours. Why not try a cornflake base with it? Same method, but healthier. The divine and smooth cheesecake filling, with a honey drizzle, will definitely be a fan favourite.
If it’s more of a main course you were after, look no further than Salmon. Salmon is one of the most consumed kinds of seafood, full of protein and essential oils. Using honey as a dressing for pan frying is a brilliant way to get as much flavour as possible from the fish, as well as helping it cook until golden brown. Serve this with seasonal vegetables.
There are close to 100 million beehives around the world, and in 2017, 1.88 million metric tonnes of it was produced. China is the world's largest honey consumer, tallying more than 238,000 tons annually.
