25 Ways To Use Honey

(Disclosure: As Owner of HealthyAperture.com I was compensated by the National Honey Board to host the webinar referenced below. I am not, however, being compensated to write this post. Opinions expressed are my own.)

If you are a regular contributor to the gallery here at Healthy Aperture, you should already know about our Healthy Aperture Blogger Network -- the group of bloggers who self-identified as having interest in hearing about our promotions and sponsorships (If you are interested, and haven't signed up, here is the sign-up form.) 

It's through this network that we've worked with various brands and media outlets including Spry Living, the Cherry Marketing Insitutute and just last week, the National Honey Board. The unique thing about Healthy Aperture -- above and beyond other syndication sites -- is that we try to keep the interests, growth and development of healthy living bloggers top of mind. So when the National Honey Board approached us about doing a webinar, we wanted to make sure it was interesting, appealing and helpful. From the overwhelming positive response we received from attendees, I think we accomplished just that.

We heard from a Beekeeper, a Honey Packer/Bottler and a culinary expert who discussed ways to cook and bake with honey. And here are just a few of the highlights from what they told us:

But THIS is what I was most interested in... how to bake with Honey. I've shared before my need to avoid cane sugar, so finding a way to bake with honey is a welcome addition to this kitchen!

Of course, there are plenty more ways to enjoy honey's natural sweet goodness. Right now, I'm thinking slathered on a biscuit with butter sounds pretty darn good. But if that's not your speed or you need just a little more inspiration, we've rounded up 25 ways to use honey from our contributors. Hope you enjoy!
