Oh Honey!


Oh honey. As morning's soft sunlight smooths February's raw early hours, open Valentine's honey, golden and innocent. Slather it over oatmeal, muffins, toast, your first word -- honor Pooh Bear and Piglet, and taste sweetness, all day long.

Honey Butter
Makes 1/4 cup

Wonderful on pancakes, muffins, cornbread, toast.

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons honey
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch salt

Work together the butter, honey and cinnamon with a spoon until thoroughly combined, then add a pinch of salt to taste. Turn into a crock or shape into a ball. Cover with waxed or parchment paper and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Honey Mustard Basting Sauce
Makes 1 cup

Keep this handy to baste roast chicken, pork, root vegetables. 

1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup whole grain mustard
1/4 cup sunflower oil

Whisk all of the ingredients together. Baste meats and vegetables with this the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking.
