Honey

Honey comes in many different varieties and consistencies. Dark honey tastes usually somewhat more hearty than the mild light honey. Honey with a firm consistency is suitable for baking. For salad sauces and tea it is best to use thin honey. Honey can be replaced by sugar beet syrup, malt extract and maple syrup or caramel syrup.
