Uses for Honey by the Geddes Farms Staff

In Food

I like to mix honey into cottage cheese, yogurt, rice and peanut butter.

Honey is great with berries and fruits like apples, pears, pineapple and strawberries. It’s also great on vanilla ice cream. Add cinnamon, crushed corn flakes and top with honey.

Brush salmon with honey, add a spritz of lemon and bake or broil.

Honey is great drizzled on rolls or as a spread on bread. I also like to use it as a dipping sauce for chicken fingers or nuggets.

Honey is great in black tea and gives a nice sweetness to pain Greek yogurt. I’ll also add it to vegetarian sandwiches – beets, arugula, goat cheese, walnuts and honey drizzled on top of a toasted ciabatta roll.

Honey with balsamic vinegar or apple cider vinegar makes a delicious and healthy salad dressing.

Honey mixed with tomato or egg whites can be used as a facial mask. Apply and leave on for 10-15 minutes and wash away.

Warm honey over a saucepan and pour it over sweet smelling herbs like lavender. 1 tablespoon of herbs per 8 ounces of honey. Let it sit for a week and then mix 1 teaspoon of your mixture in an 8 ounce bottle of unscented lotion to create your own honey moisturizer.

– Karen, Product Dev.

Soak pomelo or lemon in honey (mash pomelo or lemon first) for 1-2 days. Mix 1 or 2 scoops with warm water and sip. Helps the stomach!

Mix honey with olive oil, coconut oil or apple cider vinegar and you have a great hair conditioner.

A teaspoon of honey every day can help build your immune system and a teaspoon of honey in a glass of warm milk can help you fall asleep quickly.
