    How To Add Genuine Manuka Honey To Your Recipes - PURITI

    Adding genuine Manuka honey to your favourite recipes is incredibly easy. All it requires is a quick and easy fundamental understanding of how this honey differs from refined sugar. In this article, we will discuss what types of recipes you can use pure Manuka honey in and the tips and tricks to ensure your dishes come out perfect. 

    What recipes can you make with high-quality Manuka honey? 

    There is a large range of different recipes you can make. Whether you simply want to substitute refined sugar or want to add a unique flavour to your dish. Here are some of our favourite ways to use Manuka honey: 

  • As a glaze 
  • Many glazes use honey, maple syrup or brown sugar as a base. It adds a beautiful sweetness to the meat or vegetables and creates stunning caramelisation and colour. You can even add honey to your favourite vinaigrette and salad dressing. Just remember to add slowly and taste test.

  • Drizzled over your favourite breakfast
  • One of the best ways to enjoy NZ Manuka honey is drizzled over your favourite breakfast. It is a great topping for muesli and the perfect pairing for yoghurt. Another crowd favourite involves spreading it generously over warm toast. 

    Not a breakfast person? Add it to the top of your favourite frozen dessert for an added bit of sweetness. 

  • In beverages
  • Another exciting way you can use Manuka honey is in a delicious beverage. Whether you are a morning coffee drinker or are looking to upgrade your cocktails, this luscious honey is a great addition.

  • In baking
  • The best quality Manuka honey is a fantastic substitute for refined sugar. It is, however, important to note that it functions very differently from refined sugar. 

    Firstly, it is liquid. When you are substituting refined sugar with Manuka honey, it is important to reduce the amount of liquid in other ingredients. A good rule of thumb is to reduce liquids by ¼ cup to every cup of honey. 

    It is also not recommended to entirely replace the sugar. This will completely change the composition of the cake or cupcake and can create a dense, sticky batter that struggles to rise. 

    This brings me to my next point. Because of the beloved consistency of Manuka honey in New Zealand, it may alter the rising capabilities of the recipe. Try adding a ¼ of a teaspoon of baking powder to every cup of Manuka honey to give your baking that extra lift.  

    The final big tip for baking with Manuka honey is to drop the temperature. Honey is more likely to caramelise or burn. Reduce the temperature down in order to prevent this.
