Since we started beekeeping and therefore had our own abundant honey source, Mom and I have been on a quest to find new recipes using honey (preferably a lot of it!). And, having to submit recipes for the 2011 Honey Queen brochure spurred us on in our efforts. We’ve experimented and tested recipes for the past 5 months, some were successful, and others, well, not so much.
Having a surplus of carrots, and already experimenting with jelly recipes, we decided to give Spicy Pickled Carrots a try. After one bite, we realized that pickling spices and honey is actually not a good flavor combination (who knew?). So, after trying to unload them on friends, relatives, and enemies with little success, we’ve decided to be a little more discerning in our future recipe hunts, and, when in doubt, halve the recipe.
