The summertime is for spending time outdoors, grilling hot meals for family and friends. When it comes to barbeque, nothing tastes better than a delicious honey glaze to pair with the main course. The sweetness of honey perfectly pairs with the savory flavor of chicken, beef, and pork. Honey glaze may take more preparation than prepackaged barbeque sauce, but the results are more than worth it.
Before heading out to a barbeque, gather three simple ingredients: butter, brown sugar, and honey. Usually, honey works as a great sugar replacement, but the distinct toffee-like flavor contributes a unique taste to the glaze.
Using four tablespoons of honey, one tablespoon of sugar, and one tablespoon of butter, stir into a pan and cook on low heat. The glaze is ready to use after one minute of cooking.
Brush the glaze over any meat while it is cooking for the flavor to cook through the meat. The glaze moisturizes the inside, creating a juicy texture with crisper skin. The sweet glaze creates a complex flavor profile, sure to impress.
Making a glaze is easy, but it can be harder to know which honey to use. Since the honey is heated quickly, unpasteurized honey won’t lose its nutritional value when making a glaze.
