Tips for Cooking with Honey

  • For best results, use recipes developed for using honey.
  • When you substitute honey for granulated sugar in recipes:
    • Substitute honey for up to one-half the sugar.  With experimentation, honey can be substituted for all the sugar in some recipes.
    • In baked goods, reduce the amount of liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey used; add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda for each cup of honey used; and reduce the oven temperature by 25°F to prevent over browning.
  • For easy removal, spray measuring cup with non-stick cooking spray before adding honey.
  • Twelve ounces (weight) of honey equal one cup standard measure.
  • Honey has a higher sweetening power than sugar.

Tips for Storing Honey

  • Store honey at room temperature.  Refrigeration speeds up crystallization.
  • If honey has crystallized, remove lid and place jar in warm water until crystals dissolve.  Or, microwave 1 cup of honey in microwave-safe container at HIGH (100%) 2 to 3 minutes or until crystals dissolve; stir every 30 seconds.  Do not boil or scorch.
