Honey jars – handy and beautiful containers for honey
Honey jars are containers used for storing honey. They are typically made of glass, ceramics or porcelain with a tight-fitting lid or cork stopper to keep the honey fresh and prevent it from spilling or crystallizing. Honey jars very often come with a special spoon for honey - a honey dipper which is designed to keep the delicious honey from making a mess when you add it to your teas and other beverages
What can I serve honey with?
Honey is a delightful and adaptable natural sweetener that goes well with many different cuisines and recipes. These are a few typical choices of what you can serve your honey with:
- Breads & Pastries: Honey is a delicious topping for bread, croissants, biscuits, and other baked products. It tastes extremely well with warm muffins or toast.
- Granola with yoghurt: A sprinkle of honey can enhance a crunchy granola topping as well as plain or flavoured yoghurt by adding sweetness and taste.
- Cheese: Honey and cheese go along very nicely, particularly soft, creamy cheeses like brie or goat cheese. Consider presenting honey in a tiny dish next to a cheese plate or pouring it over a cheese board.
- Tea: Honey can be used to sweeten and flavour hot or iced tea.
- Fruit: Honey can be poured over fruit, such as apples, pears, peaches, or berries, whether it is fresh or roasted. Also, it's a typical melon or grapefruit topping.
- Sauces and marinades: Honey can also be used in sauces and marinades to add sweetness and flavour to savoury foods, such as grilled meats, roasted vegetables, or stir-fries.
Generally, honey can be used in a number of ways to add taste and sweetness to food and is a delightful complement to many cuisines.
