How to Make Honeycomb Candy
One of the great benefits of keeping beehives on your property, besides the increased food plot production and another income stream, is that you always have plenty of fresh honey in the cupboard.
In addition to slathering it onto a good breakfast biscuit, one of our favorite things to do with our honey is make this old-fashioned candy. It only has four ingredients, and it's super easy to make. All you need is a heavy pot, a parchment-lined sheet pan and a good thermometer. Honeycomb candy is a little crunchy, a little chewy, and best of all, it tastes like honey.
1/2 cup white granulated sugar
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon baking soda
Start by adding the sugar, water and honey to a large pot.
Whisk together well and place onto medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and continue cooking until it reaches 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Remove the pot from the heat. Sprinkle over the baking soda and whisk it into the candy mixture.
Immediately pour onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and allow to cool and harden for an hour.
Break apart and bag or place in a tin or lidded plastic container for storage.
