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. 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! 

French toast drizzled with Sarah’s Fruity Acacia Honey with Mixed Berries - serves 2

  • Ingredients:
    3 slices thick white bread
    3 large eggs
    1 tbsp Sarah’s Fruity Acacia honey with Mixed Berries (our Sarah's Honey with Raspberries, Blueberries or Sour Cherries would work too)
    1 tbsp salted butter
    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    A small pack of fresh mixed berries (optional garnish)

    Method:
    In a large bowl or shallow dish whisk the eggs. Dip the slices of bread in the egg, pressing slightly to ensure the eggs soak into the bread. Flip each slice so that the bread is liberally coated with egg.

    In a large frying pan heat butter and oil. Once the butter has melted place the slices of bread into the frying pan and fry on a medium heat for a minute on each side. You can fry the slices of bread one at a time if using a small frying pan. Once cooked, drain any excess oil off the slices of bread. Place on a plate and drizzle with Sarah’s Fruity Acacia Honey with Mixed Berries. You may also want to garnish with a handful of fresh mixed berries.

     


Sarah’s Warming Honey with cinnamon Spiced Lamb Tagine - (serves 4)

  • Ingredients:
    1kg diced and boneless lamb shoulder
    300ml lamb stock
    50g dried apricots
    1 large sliced onion
    2 tbsp Sarah’s Warming Honey with Cinnamon
    2 cloves crushed garlic
    2 tbsp olive oil
    1 tbsp tomato puree
    2 tsp sea salt
    2 tsp paprika
    2 tsp ground cumin
    2 tsp ground ginger
    Handful toasted flaked almonds
    Sprinkle fresh parsley


    Method:
    Place tagine on the hob and quickly warm up olive oil on a high heat. In a bowl thoroughly coat all the diced lamb with the garlic, sea salt, paprika, ground cumin and ginger. Carefully, place the lamb in the tagine and brown on all sides, then add diced onion and cook for a further few minutes.

    In a measuring jug mix stock with tomato puree and Sarah’s Warming Honey with Cinnamon, stirring until all the ingredients are fully combined. Pour mixture into the tagine whilst stirring the lamb then reduce heat to low. Place the tagine lid on and slow cook for 2 - 2½ hours or until tender. If the sauce is too watery, remove the lid and turn the heat up towards the end of the cooking time to reduce the liquid. (can also be done in a slow cooker)

    Before serving, quickly dry toast the almonds in a frying pan or toast under the grill until golden brown, and then sprinkle over the tagine along with a final garnish of fresh parsley. Serve with cous cous or flat bread.
