Granulated Honey, is also called powdered honey, honey granules, or granular honey.
 

What Is Granulated Honey

Granulated Honey is not easy to find. Known as the world's oldest sweetener, honey is one of the few foods that will never spoil.

Because of its powder like consistency, Granulated Honey is ideal to use in seasoning blends and it also plays nicely with other blend ingredients while keeping its sticky nature, making it a favorite ingredient of ours in our sweet heat blends for chicken, fish and pork.

Granulated honey is made in a process called co-crystallization. The honey and sugar are added together in liquid form and then dried together. After the honey and sugar have been combined and dried, the finished mixture is broken up through milling and what's left behind is our finished product, the granulated honey.

Granulated honey is approximately 7% honey and 93% cane sugar.
 

History of Honey

All still existing species of honeybees are indigenous to Eurasia, although there is fossil evidence of at least one, now extinct, honeybee species that lived in North America about 14 million years ago.

International researchers have analyzed residue found in Neolithic age pottery from Europe, the Middle East and North Africa and found that the relationship between humans and honeybees goes back all the way to the Neolithic age (the beginning of agriculture 10000 BC - 3000 BC). Honey use and production have a long and varied history as an ancient activity. Several cave paintings in Cuevas de la Araña in Spain are estimated to be about 8,000 years old and depicts honeycombs, swarms of bees and honey collecting.

Our first record of organized beekeeping dates back to ancient Egypt 3500 BC. It appears there was widespread use of honey among all classes of people lending credence to Egyptians having mastered beekeeping on a large scale. Writings from that time period tells of Egyptians constructing elaborate systems for honey production, which included functional rafts for transporting beehives along the River Nile to maintain seasonal, flowering plants.

The use of honey also appears in Sumerian and Babylonian cuneiform writings (3300 BC - 1200 BC) which are the writings of the Ancient Near East (the modern day Middle East), the written Hittite language (1700 BC) of the people in what is modern day eastern Mediterranean and the northern Middle East. Mayan (2600 BC - 900 AD) beekeepers harvested honey from the log nests of stingless bees native to tropical forests. Mayans were experts of beekeeping in pre-Columbian times.

Early European settlers introduced honeybee hives to Virginia in 1622. By 1639 colonies of wild honey bees were found throughout the woods in Massachusetts, migrating honey bees were discovered in Connecticut and Pennsylvania by the mid-1650s and by 1776 they had spread as far west as Michigan.
 

What Does Granulated Honey Taste Like

Distinctive thick, complex honey flavor.
 

What Is Granulated Used For

Use Granulated Honey as a sweetener in vinaigrettes or marinades, put it in your coffee or tea, or turn it into a honey-laced simple syrup for cocktails. It can be a substitute for sugar in baking, but you may want to tweak your recipes; some bakers find granulated honey sweeter than regular sugar, so adjust as necessary. Add a little crunch to the top of your muffins with granulated honey, or sprinkle on top of fresh fruit for a little extra zing with your cantaloupe.

We especially like to use it in rubs and it can be added to almost any type of chile powder to create a flavor sensation of sweet and heat. When the rub is activated by the heat of the grill or smoker, the granulated honey will glaze very nicely.

Some of our favorite recipes using granulated honey are to General Tso's Chicken and Spiced Cashews.
