From sweet-and-salty chicken wings to rich and creamy flan, see our favorite honey recipes.
Recipe: Honey Flans
An elegant make-ahead dessert, these custards sing with faint floral notes and sweet honey. Serving tip from our Test Kitchen: Flans release like a dream if you let the custard cups stand in 1 inch of warm water for 3 to 5 minutes before unmolding.
Recipe: Honey-Roasted Carrots
Substitute apple juice for bourbon, if you prefer. Look for bunches of carrots that are all about the same size so they'll cook evenly. If some are too big—or if you can't find real (sometimes labeled French) baby carrots—just peel the bigger ones and halve them lengthwise before roasting.
Spinach Salad with Honey Dressing and Honeyed Pecans
Use leftover dressing to marinate meat or perk up plain rice.
Recipe: Honey-and-Soy-Lacquered Ribs
Bake these sweet and spicy ribs up to 2 days ahead. Then simply reheat and broil before serving.

Grilled Peach-and-Mozzarella Salad
Sliced grilled peaches stacked with mozzarella make a beautiful presentation. The salad is topped off with a lime-peach vinaigrette.
Buttermilk-and-Honey Chicken Kabobs
A buttermilk marinade ensures tender meat and juicy flavor. The kabobs are delicious on their own, but even better with Toasted Pecan Pesto or Romesco Sauce.
Spicy Glazed Shrimp and Vegetable Kabobs
The sweet and tangy shrimp and seasoned vegetables are a complete meal on a stick. Caribbean jerk seasoning gives these kabobs a special, spicy flair.
