Honey is such a versatile product - great for breakfast with porridge, on toast or in tea or smoothies but can also be used in cooking and baking. Below are some recipes developed exclusively for Mileeven. 
Different honeys have different flavours - Irish Honey has a medium flavour, Organic Honey and Manuka Honey tend to be slightly stronger and Acacia Honey is very light so find the one that you like for your recipe! 

Cardamon and Mandarin Pancakes with Sarah's Jouful Honey with Orange

  • Warm a pan, add a couple of cardamom pods warm through until they pop. 
  • Add some butter and melt, add in mandarin segments and Sarah’s Joyful Honey with Orange
  • You can add a splash of nice brandy or cointreau too.  
  • Spoon over pancakes and serve with a little crème fraiche (cardamom pods can be switched for a half cinnamon stick or and anise pod, all removed before serving).

Poached Pears with Dark Chocolate Drizzle & Sarah's Zesty Honey with Ginger

A bit of extra work but well worth it, delish! 

  • Peel, quarter and core pears. 
  • Pop into a pan or ovenproof dish. 
  • Cover with half half water and white wine, a cup of sugar and a stick of cinnamon and a couple of star anise or cloves. 
  • Cover with foil and poach on a medium low heat until pears are soft but not falling apart. Gently melt the dark chocolate with equal quantity of cream or milk (you know which will be better!!) 
  • Have the Sarah's Zesty Honey with Ginger at room temperature.  
  • Remove pears from poaching liquid (keep this to store any unused pears in or to soak sponge for trifle in) slice the pears and arrange over the pancake. 
  • Drizzle over the honey and the warm chocolate sauce. 
  • Finish with a dollop of whipped cream or a good vanilla ice cream and, a sprinkle of toasted almonds or hazelnuts.

Sarah's Scrummy Honey with Sour Cherry Pancakes with Goats Cheese and Toasted Almonds

  • Fan out three pancakes onto a plate and spoon over some creamy goats cheese (pop it under the grill to brown a little if you wish but watch your pancakes don’t crisp too much.)

  • Finish by scattering some picked mint leaves.
