80oz. Honey

YIELD: Makes 24 servings



1/2 lb. - sheets filo dough, frozen

2 cups - blanched almonds, ground

3/4 cup - sugar

1 tsp. - lemon rind, grated

3/4 tsp. - cinnamon, Ground

1 cup - unsalted butter, melted

almonds, sliced for garnish

1/4 cup - sugar

1/4 cup - water

1 cup - honey

1 T - rose water


Thaw filo dough for 8 hours in the refrigerator, if frozen. Unfold sheets of filo dough so they lie flat. Cover with waxed paper, then a damp towel, to prevent them from drying out.

Preheat oven to 325°F. In a medium bowl combine almonds, sugar, lemon rind, and cinnamon. Generously butter an 8- to the 9-inch-square pan. Carefully fold 2 sheets of filo to fit pan; place in pan one at a time, brushing each with butter. Sprinkle about 3 T of the almond mixture over the top sheet. Fold 1 sheet of filo to fit pan; brush with butter. Sprinkle evenly with another 3 T almond mixture. Continue to add layers, using 1 folded sheet of filo, a generous brushing of butter, and 3 to 4 T almond mixture for each, until nut mixture is used up (there should be about 10 nut-filled layers). Fold the remaining 2 to 3 sheets of filo to fit the pan. Place on top, brushing each, with butter before adding the next. With a very sharp knife, carefully cut diagonally across the pan to make small diamond shapes--about 1 1/2 inches on a side--cutting all the way to the bottom of the pan. Pour on any remaining butter. Bake until golden brown (about 45 minutes). Pour warm Honey and Rose Water Syrup over top. Decorate each piece with an almond slice. Cool before serving.


For Honey and Rose Water Syrup (last four ingredients):

Combine sugar and the water in a 1 1/2-quart saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring. Mix in honey and cook until syrup boils again. Remove from heat; mix in rose water.

EQUIPMENT: serving board


1 brie cheese

1 cheddar cheese

1 sharp cheddar cheese

1 mozzarella cheese

1 blue cheese

assorted olives

assorted berries strawberries, blueberries, raspberries

vegetable sticks carrot, celery

assorted crackers

assorted deli meats salami, ham, prosciutto

crusty bread cut into bite size pieces

1 Stiles Honeycomb

Optional – drizzle honey throughout the platter


 Lay out your cheeses and Stiles honeycomb. You want the board to have a nice balanced layout. Cut your cheeses so that guests can take small amounts.

  1. Fill the remaining space on the board with crackers, olives, vegetables, berries, meats, nuts, and even bread. Ideally put things near each that belong together.

  2. Layering is key! This will make the board visually interesting. Use ramekins (small ceramic pots) to separate things and to have an organized platter.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cupcake pan with 12 liners.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the egg, honey, milk, oil, and vanilla extract. Add this mixture to the flour mixture and stir gently until just combined. Do not overmix.
Add the apples and oats to the bowl and gently fold them in.

YIELD: Makes approx. 24 bites; one serving is 2 bites


1 1/2 cup - rolled oats

1/2 cup - wheat germ

1/2 cup - dried figs or dates

1/2 cup - pistachios, divided

4 T - chia seeds, divided

2 T - orange marmalade

1/2 cup - almond butter

1/2 cup - honey


Line a baking sheet with parchment or wax paper

Combine the oats, wheat germ, dried figs or dates and 1/4 cup of the pistachios and 2 T of the chia seeds in the food processor and pulse a few times. Add the almond butter, honey, and orange marmalade. Process until well combined and until the “dough” begins to come together into a ball. Remove the mix to a bowl and chill for 30 minutes.

Finely chop the remaining pistachios and combine with the remaining chia seeds in a small bowl. Scoop the chilled oat mixture onto the lined baking sheet, then with wet hands roll each ball to compress the ingredients and roll in the pistachio chia seed mixture. Place the finished bites back on the baking sheet and return to the refrigerator to chill again. Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator up to a week.



YIELD: Makes 6-8 servings


1 1/2 cups - steel cut Quaker oats

2 cups - vanilla soy milk

favorite fresh fruit such as strawberries, blackberries and bananas

additional honey for drizzling


In a heavy bottom 2-quart pan, combine all ingredients except the dried fruit & walnuts, cover with a tight-fitting lid. Refrigerate overnight or at least 8 hrs., this hydrates the oats and reduces the cooking time by more than half! The next morning, add the dried fruit and stir to combine the ingredients. Bring the oats to a boil for 1 minute, reduce the heat to medium low for 8-10 minutes until oats are thickened and liquid is absorbed. Top each serving with the toasted walnuts, additional fruit and honey.


You can use any dried fruit you like and can also portion servings in to-go containers for a grab-and-go weekday breakfast. Just reheat at your destination!

This recipe was created by Chef Joshua Ingraham for the National Honey Board.



YIELD: Makes 3 1/2 cups (28 fl. oz.)


4 large - red bell peppers (about 2 lbs.)

1 cup (6 oz. wt.) - whole raw almonds

1 T - fresh minced garlic

1/4 cup (2 oz. wt.) - high-quality purchased harissa

1 cup (4 oz. wt.) - grated parmesan cheese

1/4 cup (3 oz. wt.) - honey

1/4 cup - olive oil

1 1/2 tsp. - kosher salt


Pre-heat a convection oven to 375° F.

Place peppers on a baking sheet and roast in oven or until just starting to char on the outside, about 15 – 20 minutes. Immediately transfer peppers to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap tightly. Let sit, covered, until cool.

Meanwhile, spread the almonds on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake for about 4 minutes or until golden and lightly toasted. Let cool.

Once peppers are cooled, skin should easily slip off. Remove skin, seeds and stem, and discard. Coarsely chop the peppers; you should have about 1 1/4 lbs. roasted pepper “meat.” In a food processor, combine in the following order: toasted almonds, garlic, harissa, and chopped peppers. Process for about 1 minute. Then add the parmesan cheese, honey, olive oil, and salt. Process for about another 1 minute until desired texture.

Label, date, and store refrigerated for up to 7 days.


Big flavor comes easy using a purchased harissa. Try it on a pizza, a sandwich, tossed with pasta, or served with cured meats, olives, and flatbread.

Chef’s Notes:

  • Try to purchase a harissa that is more rustic in texture and made with sun-dried tomatoes.

  • Fold into rice à la minute with coarse chopped Italian parsley.

  • Whisk with red wine vinegar, olive oil, and a touch of Dijon mustard for a tasty vinaigrette.

  • Stir in additional olive oil for a thinner sauce to drizzle.

This recipe was created by Chef Kathy Casey for the National Honey Board.



YIELD: Makes 2 1/2 cups (20 fl. oz.)


1/2 cup - fish sauce

1/2 cup - fresh lime juice

1/2 cup - honey

1/2 cup - water

2 T - fresh minced garlic

1 T - fresh lemongrass, finely minced

1/2 cup - English cucumbers, fine diced (seeds removed)

1/4 cup - red onion, fine diced

1/4 cup - carrot, fine diced

2 T - fresh mint, fine chopped

1/2 tsp. - red chili flakes


In a bowl whisk together the fish sauce, lime juice, honey, and water until well combined and the honey is dissolved. Then stir in the remaining ingredients.

Label, date and store refrigerated for up to 2 days.


Substituting honey for sugar and adding aromatic flavors makes for a modern version of the traditional dipping sauce. Ideal for serving with appetizers or drizzled on a rice bowl, salad, or an inspired sandwich.

Chef’s Notes:

  • You can make a large batch of the sauce base (fish sauce, lime, honey, water, garlic, and lemongrass) and keep it refrigerated for up to 14 days. Then add the fresh ingredients daily so they stay crunchy and fresh.

  • Try adding fresh chopped cilantro to order.

  • Double the amount of veggies and cut them large for a more chunky “pickle-like” condiment.

  • Minced fresh ginger is also a delicious addition – get creative with it!
