|There are 300+ varieties of honey in the US!|
Honey is a natural sweetener, and it's unique taste and blend of trace enzymes, minerals, vitamins and amino acids make it a beneficial substitute to sugar. You can substitute honey in recipes by reducing the liquids of your recipe in to half of what the recipe calls for, you then reduce the heat by twenty-five degrees. When you substitute the sugar with honey, use half the amount of sugar the recipe calls for.
