Fewster’s Farm Honey – December 2023 News
Welcome to the December issue of our Newsletter!
From the Bee Keeper…
We have been busy moving our bees to the ancient and pristine Jarrah Forests of the Darling Ranges just south of Perth.
The trees are flowering and the warm weather means we are looking forward to a good harvest of Jarrah Honey.
Fewster’s Farm Jarrah Honey is delicious and nutritious and tastes the way Mother Nature intended.
Honey is Mother Nature’s natural sweetener and has a low Glycemic Index. Low Glycemic Index foods release energy slowly so you don’t get the sugar spikes and crashes caused by processed sugars.
Here are some tips for substituting honey for sugar.
1. Use less honey than sugar: Because honey is naturally sweeter than sugar, reduce the amount of honey. As a general guide, for every cup of sugar, substitute 1/2 to 2/3 cup of honey.
2. Reduce the liquids: Since honey is already liquid, reduce the total amount of liquids in the recipe to counter the extra liquid from the honey. As a guide, for every 1 cup of honey used, reduce other liquids by a quarter cup.
3. Reduce the temperature: The higher sugar content in honey means it caramelises and burns faster than sugar. As a general rule, lower the temperature of the oven by 5 degrees Celsius and check more frequently.
4. Add a small amount of Bicarbonate Soda: Honey is naturally acidic, the bicarbonate soda balances out the acidity. As a rule, 1/4 teaspoon for 1 cup of honey.
Fewster’s pure West Australian honey – tastes the way Mother Nature intended.
