Sweet as Honey!

Sweet As Honey: In celebration of a sweet HONEY MONTH Chef Monica  has worked with each class this month on recipes that include the natural sweetener. The students learned about substituting sugar with honey as a healthy alternative. (Did you know that honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar?) Each class used the natural sweetener in culinary class. Some grades made granola energy balls. Some made apple snacksters. And while we were walking down the hallway yesterday, we caught fifth graders using honey in a dipping sauce for tempura veggies.

Try this delicious dipping Sauce at home.  Here’s all you need:

1 cup Honey
1 cup chopped tomatillos
1/2 cup chopped onions
2 cloves garlic
1 bunch cilantro
4 juiced limes
2 avocados
salt and pepper

Put them all in the blender….blend and viola….Sauce for the Tempura!
