Both kids and adults will enjoy stretching the honey into taffy, and the longer you stretch the honey, the easier and more pliable the taffy becomes. To avoid a sticky situation, make sure any surface you set the taffy on is thinly coated with cooking spray. You can also wear latex gloves (coated with canola oil) to make the pulling a little easier.
Ingredients
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound honey (about 1½ cups)
Instructions
  1. Step 1
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; lightly coat with cooking spray.
  3. Step 2
  4. Place honey in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, uncovered, until honey begins to boil (about 8 minutes). Continue cooking until a candy thermometer registers 280°, about 10 minutes. Quickly pour mixture onto prepared pan, spreading evenly. Cool 20 minutes.
  5. Step 3
  6. Lightly spray your hands with cooking spray. Using your hands, fold the honey over itself to form a ball. Stretch honey into a long strand (about 2 feet long). Double strand back onto itself twice, pressing ends together. Continue pulling and folding honey for about 5 minutes or until the color changes from dark amber to a soft tan. Wrap in plastic wrap coated with cooking spray, and chill for 10 minutes.
  7. Step 4
  8. Coat a knife with cooking spray, and cut the taffy into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a 12-inch log. Cut each log into 6 pieces. Roll each piece into a log, and wrap each piece in confectionary paper, cellophane wrappers, or wax paper.

These Honey Roasted Chickpeas are “Everything!”

Inspired by an everything bagel, these chickpeas are exactly what you need to pinch that craving! Chickpeas are high in protein as well as fiber, and are the perfect meal option! Just add a little honey to the mix, and we are sold!

HONEY ROASTED “EVERYTHING” CHICKPEAS

YIELD: Makes 4 servings

INGREDIENTS

For Chickpea Mixture:

1 (16 oz.) can

chickpeas

2 tsp.

vegetable oil

1/8 to 1/4 tsp.

sea salt

For Honey Mixture:

2 T

sourwood honey

1/2 tsp.

poppy seeds

1/2 tsp.

white sesame seeds

1/4 tsp.

caraway seeds

1/4 tsp.

dried garlic flakes

1/4 tsp.

dried onion flakes

1/4 tsp.

cracked black pepper

DIRECTIONS

Preheat conventional oven to 400°F.

For Chickpea Mixture: Drain the chickpeas in a colander and thoroughly rinse with cold water to remove the can liquid from chickpeas. Completely pat dry the rinsed chickpeas. Place the dried chickpeas in a mixing bowl. Add vegetable oil and sea salt, and toss to evenly combine.

Place the chickpeas on an aluminum foil-lined sheet pan, spreading the chickpeas out evenly across the pan. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, pausing to shake the pan from time to time to evenly cook the chickpeas.

Baked chickpeas should have an even roasted color, remain whole and be crunchy in texture throughout (not soft inside). 

Remove the baked chickpeas from the oven (reserving the aluminum foil lined pan) and place in a mixing bowl.

For Honey Mixture: Immediately add the sourwood honey to the baked chickpeas and stir with a spoon to coat. Add the poppy seeds, white sesame seeds, caraway seeds, garlic and onion flakes and pepper to the chickpeas, then stir to evenly combine.

Immediately place the seasoned chickpeas back on the reserved aluminum foil lined sheet pan and bake, at the same 400°F, for approximately 10 more minutes. Remove from oven and allow chickpeas to cool to room temperature.

Finished chickpeas should be very crispy, golden glazed and fully coated by the ingredients.

Serve and enjoy!

Recipe courtesy of Chef Rob Corliss, made for the National Honey Board

TIP

Adding the honey towards the end of roasting helps prevent scorching on the chickpeas.

Adding the seasoning towards the end of roasting helps prevent them from burning and getting overcooked.

Enjoy the Honey Roasted “Everything” Chickpeas as a snack or use as delicious croutons on a salad, a soup, stew or chili topper.

Oven temperatures vary and so can cooking times, so keep a close eye on the chickpeas as they bake – and cook to your desired degree of crispness.
