Bee Raw

Skip to Main Content »

Raw honey is a chef’s secret weapon—golden crusts, caramelization, moist textures and complex notes are just a few of its hidden talents. Why honey instead of processed sugar? Besides the proven health benefits, each honey’s flavor varies with the flower from which it came. Imagine the subtle hint of sage in Sage Honey Stuffing, citrus in Orange Blossom Honey and Pheasant, and earthy Buckwheat Honey Pumpkin Pie. I’m hungry already.

Try these honey recipes, share them with friends and family—and enjoy them.

From my table to yours.—Zeke

Honey Candied Bacon

Recipes >

If we're eating bacon, we're roasting it in the oven. Our all-time favorite preparation involves--yes--raw honey, but also a dash of cayenne and a layer of Dijon mustard. Salty meets sweet meets tangy has never tasted so good.

Ingredients


  • 1 lb. Dry cured bacon, sliced - I like Niman Ranch
  • 2 tbsp. Orange Blossom Honey (Or, Maple Honey)
  • ¼ c. Light Brown Sugar – I like India Tree's Light Muscovado Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Dijon Mustard
  • ½ tsp. Kosher Salt
  • ¼ tsp Cayenne Pepper

Instructions


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Cover a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Top with a wire rack.
  3. In a large bowl, add the honey, brown sugar, Dijon mustard, Kosher salt, and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
  4. Add the bacon to the bowl and toss gently with your hands.
  5. Place the bacon in a single layer onto the wire rack and bake on the center of the oven.
  6. After about 20 minutes the bacon will begin to brown, but will likely need to bake for another 10-15 minutes. The bacon is done when it is dark brown, but not burnt. If you take the bacon out too soon it will be chewy, and not candied. Resist the temptation to pull the bacon out before it is finished.
  7. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes on the rack. When the bacon is cool enough to handle, transfer it to a plate.
  8. Leave the bacon whole or break it into pieces... either way it's delicious!
  9. Serve at room temperature.
