Tasty Sauces To Make With Tupelo Honey

Tupelo honey is primarily known for its health benefits, but it happens to be quite delicious, as well. This honey is often said to have a light, pear-like flavor with floral notes. Some even say it tastes buttery. However, as delicious as tupelo honey is, you may start to get a little bored by its flavor if you enjoy it every single day as a healthy addition to your routine. Luckily, there are lots of tasty sauces you can make with the tupelo honey to add a little diversity to your routine. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.

Honey Dijon Dressing

This homemade honey Dijon dressing has a balanced flavor. It's not too spicy and not too sweet. Drizzle it on a salad, or use it to dip your fresh veggies. To make about 1 cup of it, you need:

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup tupelo honey
  • 2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • a pinch of salt

Whisk all of the ingredients together and enjoy. You can store any leftovers in the fridge and use the dressing to get your daily dose of tupelo honey.

Tupelo Honey Barbecue Sauce

This is not your typical barbecue sauce. It does not contain any tomato products or molasses, but it's still delicious on chicken, pork, and basically anything else you might barbecue. To make about a cup of sauce, you need:

  • 1/4 cup tupelo honey
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup apple sauce
  • a pinch of cayenne pepper
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Whisk all of the ingredients together. Allow the sauce to sit for 20 minutes so the flavors can blend together before you use it.

Tupelo Honey Ice Cream Sauce

Here's one final sauce recipe — a sweet one for your ice cream! You could drizzle it on cake and other desserts, too. To make one cup of sauce, you'll need:

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup tupelo honey
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine the butter and brown sugar in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a simmer, and simmer for 1 minute. Remove from heat, and immediately stir in the other ingredients. Use immediately, or store in the fridge. If you refrigerate the sauce, you'll want to microwave it briefly before use.

With these sauce recipes up your sleeve, you'll never get bored with your tupelo honey.
