Honeycomb

  • 100g caster sugar
  • 50g clear honey

  2. Working quickly, take off heat and immediately, sieve over the bicarb, the mixture will foam and very gently stir with a whisk.
  3. Poor mixture into tin and leave for 1 hour minimum to harden.
  4. Once ready, lightly crush so you have small and larger pieces (this can be stored in an air-tight container).
