baking soda for each cup of honey used.

Because of its high fructose content, honey has a
higher sweetening power than sugar. This means you
can use less honey than sugar to achieve the desired
measuring honey, coat the measuring cup with
non-stick cooking spray or vegetable oil before
adding the honey. The honey will slide right out.
To retain honey's wonderfully luxuriant
texture, always store it at room temperature; never
in the refrigerator. If your honey becomes cloudy,
don't worry. It's just crystallization, a natural
process. Place your honey jar in warm water until the
crystals disappear. If you're in a hurry, place it in
a microwave-safe container and heat it in the
microwave on HIGH for 2-3 minutes, stirring every 30
seconds. Remember, never boil or scorch honey.
Honey should not be fed to infants under one year of
