Tips for Cooking with Honey


• Crystallized honey can be liquefied by placing the jar in a pot of warm water. Do not boil. Loosen the lid to prevent pressure from building up in the jar and don’t allow water to contact the honey.

• Coat measuring cups and utensils with cooking oil/spray before measuring so honey will pour out easily.

• Honey should not be fed to infants under one year of age.

Flo’s Blue Ribbon Honey Jalapenos
Flo Mascilli won a blue ribbon at the PA State Beekeepers picnic with this recipe.

32 peppercorns
8 large cloves garlic, sliced
2 ½ pounds red and green jalapeno peppers, cut into rings
4 cups real apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of honey
2 teaspoons of pickling salt
2 tablespoons mixed pickling spice
¼ cup extra virgin olive oil

Divide the garlic and peppercorns between 8 half-pint canning jars. Then pack the jars with pepper slices. Boil the vinegar, salt, and honey in a nonreactive pot with the picking spices in a spice bag. Once boiling, and the salt is dissolved, pour the liquid over the peppers leaving ½ inch of head space in each jar. Add 1½ teaspoons of extra virgin olive oil to each jar. Place the lids on the jars and process in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. Store the jars of honey jalapenos in a cool dark place for at least three weeks before eating.
