honeycomb 3


1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 tbsp glucose syrup
1 tbsp honey
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp baking soda


Line a metal tray with non-stick baking paper. Have your baking soda measured out and ready to add and make sure your whisk is ready to grab.

In a large pot (preferably stainless steel so you can easily watch the colour) place the sugar, glucose syrup, honey and water. Place on medium-high heat and about every 30 seconds, gently tilt the pan a touch so the mixture combines without going all over the sides of the pan and then continue to do so to ensure it cooks evenly and you don’t have a clump of sugar in the middle that could burn. When it looks a light amber colour, add the baking soda and quickly whisk to combine, then tip onto the lined baking tray.
