Spreading honey around
Bigelow, the tea company, has added a line of flavored honey spreads useful for everything from buttering your toast to warming up as a syrup for waffles. The 11-ounce jars sell for about $3 each and are available in six flavors - black currant, cinnamon, French vanilla, lemon, orange and raspberry.
For marinating beef or poultry, mix half a jar of the Orange Honey Spread with 1/2 cup teriyaki sauce, 1 small clove of fresh, minced garlic and 1/2 tablespoon of finely chopped onion. Add to meat and refrigerate for 1 to 3 hours. Discard unused marinade or boil it for 5 minutes before using it as a sauce.
Other recipes and serving suggestions are available on the company's Web site, www.bigelowtea.com. Or write to R.C. Bigelow Inc., P.O. Box 326204, Dept. HPR, Fairfield, CT 06432-6204.
