unique uses for honey - smore's with honey marshmallows

Honey is a delicious, wonderfully sweet, natural food that is a great addition to a cup of tea, bowl of oatmeal, and other foods. But, did you know there are a lot of other ways to use honey? Here are five unique uses for honey for you to try during Honey Month in September.

  1. Sore throat remedy. Instead of taking traditional cough syrup, try a concoction of honey, fresh lemon juice, and hot water to soothe an aching throat. Aside from the soothing effects, honey has natural antibacterial qualities to help boost your immune system.
  2. Baking alternative. Swap out refined sugar for honey. You’ll need less honey to make your dish just as sweet, and you’ll gain its natural antioxidants.
  3. Boost before a workout. Take down a tablespoon of honey before a workout to help boost your performance.
  4. Preserve fruit. Mix one part honey with 10 parts water to create a “honey sauce.” Fill a jar with your favorite summer fruits, add the honey sauce, seal the jar, and open in the winter to enjoy a preserved summer treat.
  5. Make marshmallows. Yes, you can make your own marshmallows. Use this recipe for fluffy goodness sweetened with honey.
