Honeycomb

SONY DSCMy father has just retired so in a bid to keep him out of the house my mother bought him a bee hive. In honour of their first crop I decided to do something with their glut of honey. Honeycomb seemed a sensible decision and so I found a recipe from the trusty Good Food Magazine. It was surprisingly easy to make and tastes like a glorified Crunchie bar. It may not be suitable to feed to the very young or very old as it might glue their teeth together/destroy dentures, but it will transform the lowliest of ice cream into a delectable delight:

  •  200g caster sugar
  • 4 tbsp clear honey
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 1tbsp bicarbonate soda
  1. Grease a baking tray with sunflower oil and line with baking parchment.
  2. Poor the sugar, honey and water into a pan. Gradually heat until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Once dissolved, bring to the boil.
  4. Using a sugar thermometer boil until it reaches 149 degrees centigrade (this takes about 15 mins but stay with it as it will suddenly get hot)
  5. Take off the heat and whisk in the bicarbonate of soda.
  6. Poor the fizzing mixture on the baking tray and leave to cool.
  7. Break up to required size

Directions for use: Snap it, wrap it, share it, enjoy it!
