Saturday Food of the Day – December 12, 2015

FOOD OF THE WEEK – HONEY

Honey is a popular alternative sweetener for refined white sugar in baking and a match for a cup of tea, but there are so many more possibilities for this nectar.

WHY HONEY?

Rich, sweet complex-tasting honey is a flavor powerhouse that complements a wide range of foods from root vegetables to hams to puddings, cakes and quick breads.
