Apple Cider Honey
This recipe is made out of just a single ingredient that is taken care of very well and results in a syrup with honey consistency and a flavor like no other. Make sure to use fresh whole apple cider and not refined apple juice.
This cider honey can be used in anything you like to add bee honey to: alongside cheeses, on pork, on roast squash, or to finish any number of dishes.
If your apple cider honey looks too thick once it cools down, your can heat it up and add a little bit of water to get the desired consistency.
In Washington state, apples are prized. We find many ways to use them in a multitude of applications.
In the fall and winter, when bee honey is scarce, cider honey is an excellent seasonal substitute.
Pour ½ gal of apple cider into a medium pot
Turn the heat on to high and cook until reduced by ½. Remove any film that forms on the surface with a skimmer
Turn the heat down to medium and let the cider reduce to ¼ of its original volume
Turn the heat down to low and cook until syrupy. Use a spoon to see if the cider’s flow separates into drops
Transfer to another recipient. The apple cider honey is ready
Enjoy! Use it on any recipes you’d like, like toasts or even on sauces! If it's too thick for your taste, just add a bit of water!
