Can I subsititue honey for sugar in my recipes?
Yes. Follow these simple guidelines:
1. Substitue honey for up to 1/2 of the sugar.
 2. Reduce the liquid in the recipe by 1/4 cup for each cup of honey used in baked  goods.
 3. Add about 1/2 tsp. baking soda for each cup of honey used in baked goods.
4. Reduce oven tempurature by 25 F to prevent over-browning of baked goods.


What are the benefits of using honey instead of sugar?
Honey is 100% natural and adds distinct flavor notes to recipes. Honey also absorbs and retains moisture, this keeping your items fresh for a longer period of time. Honey is also sweeter than sugar, allowing you to use less of it to gain the same sweetness level.


How much is a cup of honey?
An 8 oz. measuring cup of honey requires 12 oz. (new weight) of honey to fill it. Honey is sold by weight, not by liquid measure. This does cause confusion at times. (We must follow the government guidelines.)


Is there an easier, less messy way to measure honey?
Yes. Loosely line your measuring cup with plastic wrap, leaving plenty of extra overhang. Pour honey into measuring cup, allowing honey to fill in the cup. Gather the overhanging wrap, twist and then remove from cup. Snip the bottom and squeeze the honey into the mixing bowl.



What began as a beekeeping hobby for Ralph and Luella Gamber has grown to become the largest family-owned honey company in the United States.
