Honey - The healthy sweetener

Here are a couple of recipes that include honey as an ingredient.  However, honey can be substituted for sugar in almost any recipe.  Other than the health benefits, a benefit of cooking with honey is that foods made with it retain their moisture and freshness longer.  When substituting honey for sugar in your recipes, follow these general guidelines:  Substitute 3/4 cup of honey for one cup of sugar, up to one cup.  Reduce the total amount of other liquids in the recipe by 1/4 cup per cup of honey.  Lower baking temperature by 25 degrees to prevent over browning.
