What Makes Whipped Honey Special?
Honey, even in its liquid form, is thick and sticky, which can make it difficult to use in general. When you whip it, the new creamier texture can be used more easily in your recipes. Plus, it transforms the honey’s texture from sticky to creamy. If you have honey stored at home starting to crystallize, it is best to whip it to get that smooth and creamy texture. After whipping, the colour also changes from brown-gold to almost off-white.
How To Eat Whipped Honey?
Whipped honey can be used on top of waffles, or pancakes, or mixed into your daily oatmeal. Here are some simple and interesting recipes you can try with whipped honey:
