Recipes for Cooking, that use honey

By using recipes that include honey as an ingredient, we may promote honey in cookery and educate beekeepers in how to use a portion of their crop.

Credit is given where the source is known, but generally these recipes have appeared in various beekeeping magazines and newsletters. They are in no particular order, but when a large number have been gathered they will be sorted into categories.
