- 400g caster sugar
- 100ml honey (use local honey where possible)
- 2 tablespoon liquid glucose (I use the same amount of powdered glucose if liquid is not available)
- 11/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (sieved)
Home-made honeycomb is a real treat. Break into bite size pieces and dip in you favourite dark chocolate for the ultimate treat!
Line a large baking tray with parchment paper.
Place the sugar, glucose and honey in a heavy bottom saucepan with 100ml water.
Place the saucepan on a medium heat and stir until the sugar has dissolved.
Once dissolved stir no more! Simple swirl the pot to ensure the mixture heats evenly. Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature. Allow the boiling sugar solution to reach 160°C in temperature; then quickly whisk in the bicarbonate of soda and tip the molten honeycomb onto the lined tray.
Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
