Best Season Summer
  • 1/3 cup Honey
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 1/8 teaspoon real salt
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon Gelatin (2 individual 1 oz packets)
  1. Put 1/4 cup of water into a mixing bowl.

  2. Sprinkle powdered gelatin evenly on top and set aside.

  3. Stir honey, salt, and other 1/4 cup of water in a small saucepan until well combined.

  4. Turn on medium heat and don't stir the mixture again. The honey will boil, just let it roll.

  5. Meanwhile, fill a small bowl with ice water. This is just to test the temperature of the honey mixture.

  6. Heat on medium heat for about 9 minutes, then begin testing if the mixture is hot enough.  Since it is a small amount of liquid, double-check it's done by using a knife or spoon to drip a tiny bit of the mixture into prepared ice water. Once a small sheet of crystallized honey forms in the ice water, it's hot enough.

  7. Slowly whisk the honey into the gelatin. The gelatin will have firmed into a disk at the bottom of the bowl. Make sure to evenly mix the honey and fully integrate the gelatin when you first start mixing them together.

  8. After fully mixed, transfer to an electric whisk. I used my kitchen aid. Mix on high until the mixture is thick and fluffy. It should be thick enough to stick to the beaters. This only took about 5-7 minutes.

  9. Pour into parchment lined pans and let sit out to dry, uncovered, for 12 hours until firm.

  10. Cut into any size! I like large squares for roasting and tiny squares for cocoa 🙂

  11. Serve and enjoy!

Extra whipping of the mixture can lead to a tough taffy-like texture. Do not over mix.
