MY SIMPLE RECIPE FOR BEE-FREE "HONEY"
This will be a short little post. I have posted this recipe on Facebook a couple of times, but never here on my blog. I thought it was about time to post it here.
As a vegan, I just didn't eat honey for a long, long time. It's not that I crave it, but every so often there's some recipe that just needs it, or it sounds comfy to stir some into tea with lemon when you have a cold. So one day, I experimented with various syrups and combinations, and this one was our favorite.
BRYANNA'S SIMPLE HOMEMADE BEE-FREE "HONEY"
Makes 1/2 cup—multiply as needed
Closest I’ve come to the real thing.
Check out the photo below for the brands I used and the color of agave syrup I used. You can use your favorite brands, but I think the more caramel-colored agave syrup is best in this recipe.
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 tsp. lemon juice
Hint: Very lightly oil the inside of your measuring cup and the syrups will more easily pour out.
Mix the ingredients together well and store in a covered jar in the refrigerator.
It firms up a bit after a few hours of chilling.
PS: One could infuse this mixture with lavender or whatever flavor of honey you liked "back in the day".
