Honey is a sweet treat that adds so much joy to life. This is all thanks to the bees for all of their hard work! If you are looking for great recipes to enjoy, you’ve come to the right spot. Let’s outline some amazing recipes that incorporate honey.

Honey Cinnamon Rollups

If you enjoy desserts, you will love these honey cinnamon rollups. Combine 2 cups of ground, toasted walnuts, 1/4 cup of sugar; and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Then, roll out and butter one sheet of phyllo dough. Place another sheet on top, butter it, and spread the walnut-cinnamon-sugar mixture. Roll it up and cut it like sushi into fourths. The amount of walnut mixture should be enough to do this five more times.

After you have a tray of rolls, bake them at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. While they bake, boil 1/2 cup of honey, 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of water, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, then simmer until combined. Drizzle this cooled syrup over the finished rolls and enjoy.

Air-Fried Ginger Honey Salmon

The air fryer is the long-awaited equipment of home chefs that won the world over, and this ginger honey salmon recipe will wow your palate. In a bowl, combine 1/3 cup orange juice, 1/3 cup soy sauce, 1/4 cup honey, one chopped green onion, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, and 1 teaspoon garlic powder. Remove about a third of this mixture for later, then drop a salmon filet in the bowl and marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes. Turn it occasionally for the best results.

Fry the salmon in a 325-degree air fryer for about 18 minutes or until the fish is flaky. Near the end of its cooking cycle, use the marinade you set aside earlier to keep it from getting dry. This fish is delish!

Honey Challah

Challah is the traditional bread eaten by people of the Jewish faith on their sabbath and holidays. On the Jewish New Year, people traditionally dip bread in honey to ensure the coming year is sweet. Although, adding honey to the dough skips the dipping step.

To start, combine two packages of active dry yeast, 1 cup of 110-degree water, and 1/2 teaspoon sugar. After the yeast activates, mix it with five eggs (remove and refrigerate two whites), 2/3 cup honey, 1/2 cup oil, 2 teaspoons salt, 3 cups of flour, and 1/2 cup of 110-degree water.

Beat it on medium speed and add flour until the consistency is right. Place the dough on a floured surface and knead for about 8 minutes. Then, cover it in plastic and let it rise on top of a warm oven for about 90 minutes (or until it has doubled).

Once it has risen, separate it into two parts and braid it into braided loaves. Let it rise again for 30 more minutes (or until it has doubled again). Next, brush each loaf with the whites from earlier and a bit more honey, then bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. Once your bread is golden brown, it is ready to remove and cool.
