Flavored Honey

Honey (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
By Juvy S. Iliwiliw

Look for local honey sold on the roadsides when you go out of town and use that for this recipe. Local honey is not only fresher, but also cheaper than imported honey from the supermarket. You can find pots of sage and thyme fairly easily at the many organic markets that have sprung up all over the city.


You will need:

A few sprigs of fresh sage or thyme, washed well and dried

2 cups honey

Here's how:

Put a sprig or two of fresh sage or thyme in small warm sterilized jars. Cover with honey and seal well. Let stand for a few weeks to let the flavor develop.

Yield: 2 cups
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Storage time: 6 months, refrigerated (to best preserve flavor)
Packaging ideas: Tie dried leaves, flowers or twigs around jars using twine or other decorative strings for a rustic, country look.
