Kitchen tip for honey lovers

Here’s my quick and simple tip for Kitchen Tip Tuesdays, hosted by Tammy’s Recipes.

I don’t use regular white or brown sugar (any processed sugar, for that matter) in my cooking or baking. Instead, I use honey, molasses and sometimes maple syrup. There are a few challenges to doing this (substituting honey for sugar in recipes in one of those issues, which I’ll try to post about soon).

The other challenge is that because honey is so sticky and thick, it’s hard to get it all out of measuring cups and spoons while baking or cooking. Here’s a simple little trick I learned to make it simple to get all of your honey out of the cup: If the recipe calls for any oil, melted butter, etc. measure that first, and then measure your honey in the same cup/spoon/pyrex that you used for the oil. It will slide out so easily, and you won’t lose any of it.

If I’m not using any oil in my recipe, or the amounts are completely different (1 cup of oil, 1 Tbsp of honey), then I will just use my little olive oil spray (the kind that you pump and use to spray on baking sheets, etc.) to lightly coat the measuring tool before I use it. Before I had the oil spray bottle, I would just pour a small amount in a measuring cup, and use my finger to lightly coat the surface, then pour out the excess oil if necessary.

This works wonderfully for any sticky liquid, especially molasses! Mmmmm… molasses. Now I’m craving ginger snaps!

Are you or your family struggling with health challenges? Is it time to make some changes? Maybe you already know that you WANT to do things differently in your home -- use better products, buy real, wholesome foods, prepare more from-scratch meals, even use home remedies instead of medication when you're sick. But do you have all the tools you need to make it happen?

That's why we created the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle. We spent months searching for the very best, most practical healthy living resources we could find, like real food recipes (we have some for gluten & grain free, too), DIY tutorials for home and beauty, solid nutrition information, home remedies, essential oil courses and books, workouts for moms, meal planning help and more. The entire package is worth over $1000, but our whole goal is to make it totally affordable for anyone. At just $30, it's cheaper than a doctor's visit, filling a prescription, or even eating dinner as a family out at a restaurant!

To make it more of a no-brainer, we partnered up with 10 natural living sponsors who are offering you over $200 in free bonuses that you can redeem, just because you bought a bundle. And to say a special "thank you!" to my readers who buy through this site, I've got an extra special webinar that I want to invite you to.

The one catch? It's available for just a few more hours! It should have already ended, but since so many awesome readers tried to grab it yesterday and our site crashed for a little bit, we're extending it and giving you just until Tuesday at 12:00 noon PST (3pm EST), Sept.16th. So you don't to wait! Click here to learn more about what's in this year's phenomenal package and then pick one up for yourself. You'll be glad you did!
