A Buzzworthy Ingredient

If you look in your kitchen cabinet right now, I’m willing to bet that you’ve got a bottle of honey. If you’re like me, you might even have three or four—a bear from the grocery store and those local farmers market varieties of clover blossom and wildflower that I can absolutely never resist. It makes sense: honey is perfect for stirring into lemony tea during the winter to soothe a sore throat or for making summertime cocktails. We have a not-so-secret gem for you though, that brings that floral sweetness to your spice cabinet: Honey Powder.

Great on Snacks:

Are you a fan of kettle corn? Honey Powder is an awesome sweet popcorn sprinkle, perfect for a movie night treat. For another spin on this super flavorful snack, mix up the spice blend for our Chile Cheese Popcorn and sprinkle it on plain popped corn, along with a drizzle of melted butter or olive oil.

Enjoy Ripe Summer Veggies All Year:

In the Test Kitchen, some of our favorite uses for Honey Powder are savory. If you’ve read our Tomato Powder blog, you’re privy to my personal favorite trick: add a sprinkle of Honey Powder to off-season veggies (like tomatoes!) to add just a hint of the floral sweetness that will add a summertime ripe flavor to soups, sauces, salsas, etc. 

We utilize this tip in some of our tomato-based Spice ‘n Easy mixes, like Rustic Red SauceTikka Masala, and Toasty Tomato Bisque.  If you make our Southwestern Chili con Carne, try serving it with some honey-infused corn bread (or hush puppies) along with Honey Butter for real comfort food vibes.
