What Is Creamed Honey?
When developing our Crumpets recipe, we discovered a new favorite condiment to spread over these yeasted rounds: creamed honey. Made by processing regular honey to encourage the formation of tiny crystals that give it a thick, supersmooth consistency, creamed honey (also known as spun honey) is great for smearing over anything that needs a sweet boost. Its thickness is a particular asset in a peanut butter and honey sandwich because it stays in place instead of being absorbed into the bread or dripping out. It works well on a cheese board, too, especially when paired with sharp cheddar or tangy blue cheese. You can also use it to make a thicker, creamier honey mustard spread: Combine 1 tablespoon of dry mustard with 1½ teaspoons of water and let the mixture sit for 10 minutes before stirring in ⅓ cup of creamed honey. Avoid applying creamed honey to overly hot foods (such as a hot ham). If it gets too hot, the crystals will melt and the honey will revert to its liquid state.
