Honest Magazine: The Honey Issue
Making a look at nature’s oldest sweetener, the honey issue dives into the “nectar of the gods” in all its forms. Recipes such as “Bee-Stung Cake” and “Amaretti Cookies with Orange Blossom” lean into the sweet side of things, while “Za’tar -Baked Cauliflower with Pine Nuts,” “Honey-Baked Feta with Lavender and Rye Crisps,” and “Goat Cheese and Blackberry Tartlets” teach savory applications for the ingredient traditionally thought of for dessert. Explorations into the layers of a hive, the history of honey, and wild varieties of honey showcase how honey differs across time and across the world. A tutorial for making mead leads into a story with a beekeeper and other articles, filling out the picture of the popular ingredient.
