Kitchen Table Kibitzing Friday – Bee art

Kitchen Table Kibitzing is a community series for those who wish to share a virtual kitchen table with other readers of Daily Kos who aren’t throwing pies at one another. Drop by to talk about music, your weather, your garden, or what you cooked for supper…. Newcomers may notice that many who post in this series already know one another to some degree, but we welcome guests at our kitchen table and hope to make some new friends as well.

Bees seemed like an interesting and important topic.

Bees in Minecraft

Bees are flying neutral mobs that live in bee nests and beehives. If provoked, bees attack in a swarm to “sting” the player and inflict poison.


Honey is often substituted as a healthier alternative to sugar as “in comparison to regular sugar, honey does have more nutritional value,” practising accredited dietician Natalie Von Bertouch tells New Idea Food. “Still, moderation is advised as just like with sugar, too much honey can lead to blood sugar issues, weight gain, increased risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Stick to a tablespoon or less per serving.”

Honey substitutes in cooking

So what can you substitute honey for in cooking? Here’s our comprehensive list of when and what to substitute.

1. Rice malt syrup

If you’re looking for a sugar-free and vegan alternative rice malt syrup is for you. It also has the most similar profile and you can use it part for part in baking.

2. Brown rice syrup

While stickier than honey, brown rice syrup is a good substitute for honey especially if you’re adding it to coffee and tea. It has a milder taste so you might want to add a little bit extra or enjoy the subtle flavour….…
