Honey, in and of itself, does not a dish make. However, honey contributes a lot to many different types of dishes, and it is a preferred sweetener when the cook is trying to preserve nutrients and keep ingredients whole and natural. Try cooking with honey on a few of these recipes, and experiment with substituting honey for sugar in some of your own favorite recipes.
