Review: Airborne Honey

Recently I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to review some of New Zealand's own Airborne Honey. With Phil's Dad being a bee keeper I was particularly interested to try it out.

I was given 2 different products to try:
Airborne Honey for Kids which has a mild flavour perfect for kids and comes in a great 'no-mess' squeezy bottle which makes it so easy to use, and Kamahi Honey which has quite an intense flavour perfect for baking/cooking. Both are delicious and as you can see in the photo they are being well used.

There are a number of ways in which I use honey .....

1. The classic honey sandwich, which Riley is mad about.

2. My scrummy home made muesli.

3. Lemon and honey drinks, which are great for colds.

4. Baking/cooking

Recipe: Honey Snaps

- 50g butter
- 2tbsp sugar
- 3tbsp honey
- 1/2 cup plain flour
- 1tsp baking powder
- 1/2tsp ground ginger

- Melt together the butter, sugar and honey in a saucepan.
- Remove from heat and stir in the flour, baking powder and ginger. Mix until smooth.
- Place teaspoonfuls on a lightly greased cold tray, leaving enough room for the mixture to spread to double its size.
- Bake at 180 degrees for about 10 minutes or until golden. Keep an eye on them as they're really easy to burn.
- Leave on the tray for a few minutes to cool before putting them on a wire rack.
