This project shows you how to make lemon flavored honey spoons ideal for stirring into hot tea or coffee.
What you need
1/2 cup of honey
2 cups of sugar
1 tbs of white vinegar
1/4 cup of water
Lemon extract essence
Heavy Plastic Spoons
Place all the ingredients (except the essence) into a heavy bottom saucepan. Bring to the boil constantly stirring and brushing down the sugar from the sides. Bring it to a gentle simmer and cook until it reaches hard crack stage. To test for hard crack stage you will need to carefully drip it into a glass of cold water when it reaches crack stage it instantly goes hard in the water.
You can learn more about basic toffee making here.
Once it has reached the correct stage, remove it from the heat and allow it to cool slightly, add the essence and then dip your spoons into the toffee and place them down onto a greased cookie tray to set.
Honey spoons are a great gift idea at Christmas time too. Perfect for gifting to someone who is feeling the flu or a cold as the honey soothes the throat and the lemon on the spoon is antibacterial.
Finish this project off by wrapping them in cellophane and attaching a handmade tag or label. You might like these Honey stickers we found on Amazon for adding to your bagged spoons.
