According to The National Honey Board, Honey can be used in a multitude of ways:

  • Sweetener: Honey is slightly sweeter than sugar, so less can be used to achieve the same sweetness intensity.
  • Flavor: Honey not only imparts a unique flavor to any dish, but it also balances and enhances the flavor profiles of other ingredients used in a recipe.
  • Emulsifier: Honey acts as a binder and thickener for sauces, dressings, marinades and dips.
  • Humectant: Honey provides and retains moisture to a variety of dishes and can even extend the shelf life of baked goods.
