Ingredients

Cinnamon, Honey & Lime Juice Tea

    For 2 Cups

    • 2 cup of water
    • 1/2 stick of cinnamon
    • 1 Tablespoon Honey
    • 1 Tablespoon Lime or Lemon Juice
    • 2 small pieces of Honeycomb Made in the USA Honey (About 1/2-IN Cube)

    Homemade Creamy Honey Nut Spread

      Makes about 1 1/4 Cup Spread

      • 8 Ounces of Roasted Hazelnuts Almonds or the nuts of your choice
      • 4 ounces margarine no salt added
      • 4 Tablespoons of Honey

      Instructions

      Cinnamon, Honey & Lime Juice Tea

      • Place the water in a small saucepan and turn heat to medium-high, when it starts boiling add the piece of cinnamon stick and lower heat and simmer for about 7-8 minutes.
      • Remove saucepan from heat. Add honey and the lime juice, stir well.
      • Serve in two cups, and add the Honey Comb. Drink your tea and chew the honeycomb.

      Homemade Creamy Honey Nut Spread

      • Grind the nuts using a spice grinder, food processor or heavy-duty blender until they are completely grounded.
      • Mix already ground nuts, margarine, and honey in a saucepan over lower heat. This step will take about 2 to 3 minutes. Just enough time to melt the butter and then mix thoroughly. even though the saucepan was over low heat the mix will be very hot, I know you will be tempted to stick your tongue on the spoon, but wait a few minutes for it to cool off and check for sweetness in case you want to add more honey to your own liking.
      • Pour the nut mixture into a container with a lid and let cool. Store it in your fridge and serve with crackers, toast or fruit slices.

      Notes

      Cinnamon
      • When I was growing up, one of my uncles used to give us kids a small amount of Honey Comb fresh out of the beehive, while tendering the bees hives, it was a sweet juicy treat back then. Do you know that you can add the Honey Comb to savory and sweet dishes? I personally like to chew a little piece when having a sore throat, while drinking my tea, it really helps ease the pain.
      Honey Nut Spread
      • This recipe is from my Mother-in-law and her recipe uses Hazelnuts, but I had used the recipe with other roasted nuts, like this time that I used almonds. You can also add other flavorings like vanilla or cinnamon. Better yet, substitute the Honey for the whipped honey mixed with cinnamon, Chocolate or caramel from the Don Victor Brand. It is by far a better option than buying the most popular brand of Hazelnut spread since you are making it at home at a much lower price.
