Recipe Notes *If you like to make your own honey, it’s easy to make homemade honey sauce using the honey from your local farmers market.
Just use one cup of honey, one cup cold water, one tablespoon of honey powder, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/16 teaspoon pepper, and 1 tablespoon garlic powder.
You can substitute the garlic powder with garlic powder, onion powder, papaya powder, or a little less garlic powder for the honey powder.
For a more natural taste, you can also use one tablespoon pure maple syrup instead of honey.
You could also add a pinch of salt to the honey.
*If using canned honey, you might need to reduce the salt by half if you want to keep it for cooking.
You might want to add more salt if the honey is too salty.
