He must have known something secret about this nectar made by nature. In ancient times, honey was used in Egypt to appease the river gods. Warriors used honey on wounds as a natural cure to promote healing. Supposedly, the body of Alexander the Great was preserved and embalmed with honey. But honey was expensive and only the wealthy used it in cooking. Honey is composed primarily of carbohydrates (natural sugars) and water, as well as trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins and amino acids. Providing 17 grams of carbohydrates and 64 calories per tablespoon, honey is an all-natural sweetener. You can substitute honey for other sugars in a recipe. Just keep in mind that you’re adding liquid, so you need to adjust the recipe accordingly. When baking, substitute honey for up to half of the granulated sugar called for in the recipe. For every cup added, reduce the other liquids in the recipe by 1/4 cup, add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees to prevent overbrowning. So buzz into the kitchen and give honey a try the next time you want to reach for the sugar canister. You’re in a for a naturally sweet treat. Let nature’s deliciously sweet, all-natural nectar bring new energy to your favorite recipes In small bowl, combine honey, ketchup, vinegar, horseradish, garlic and red pepper flakes until well blended. Reserve half of sauce. In separate bowl, mix together salmon, bread crumbs, onion and egg whites. Blend in 2 tablespoons of reserved sauce. Divide salmon mixture into 4 patties, 1/2- to 3/4-inch thick. Place patties on well-oiled grill, 4 to 6 inches above hot coals. Grill, turning two to three times and basting with sauce, until burgers are browned and heated through. Place on hamburger buns and serve with reserved sauce. down center of each tortilla. Top each with 1/4 cup lettuce. Fold in sides to wrap. *To prepare pork for the wrap: Season a 1-1/2pound boneless pork roast with salt and pepper; brown on all sides in a hot non-stick skillet with a little olive oil. Add 1/2 cup chicken broth or water to pan, lower heat, cover tightly and simmer for 1-1/2 hours, until roast is very tender. Check pan occasionally for liquid level; if broth has evaporated, add a little more to maintain a moist cooking environment. Remove roast from pan, let cool slightly and shred or chop pork coarsely. A 1-1/2-pound roast will yield 4 cups of pork. Use immediately or cover and refrigerate up to 4 days. Serve cold or reheated.
