Chipotle-Honey Dipping Sauce

Chipotle Honey Dipping Sauce

This dip is exactly what it appears to be — fun and simple. Chipotle peppers made an enormous splash on the food scene a number of years ago, and they still maintain a big presence in a variety of food styles. Use this dipping sauce for everything from fried chicken tenders to grilled prawns.

Our Friend, the Honeybee

Bees are downright amazing.  They communicate with each other through dance, they evaporate water from honey in their hives by flapping their wings, and they visit more than 2 million blossoms just to create one pound of honey.  During a bee’s quest for nectar, it collects and spreads pollen, playing a critical role in pollinating our local farmlands.

As a result of our happy honeybee’s unique talents and travels throughout Yolo, Solano, Colusa and Sacramento counties, honey contains beneficial enzymes and bee pollen.  Fresh to Market honey is pure, raw and all-natural, which means it is extracted and filtered in such a way as to keep those beneficial enzymes intact.  An added bonus?  Many believe that the trace pollen contained in local honey helps reduce seasonal allergy symptoms.

We have good reason to believe that after you try our spectacular all-natural honey, you too will want to spread the word about our amazing little friend, the honeybee.

Health Notes with Dr. LizDr Liz

How Sweet It Is

A part of our diets for over 4,000 years, honey represents one of our only "insect" foods — bees make it from sweet flower nectar.  Honey is a supersaturated solution of water and sugars (primarily fructose, which is the sweetest sugar type of them all).  And thanks to its bee "roots," honey has some nutritional powers worth noting:

  • Sweeter than table sugar: Calorie for calorie, honey tastes sweeter than regular sugar.  This means fewer calories when you use it in recipes or to sweeten your iced tea.  You’ll have to do a taste test because honey and sugar don’t measure up teaspoon for teaspoon — honey has more carbohydrates and calories per teaspoon (23, versus 16 for table sugar), because honey is a liquid and denser than dry sugar.
  • Exercise booster: Studies show that the sugars in honey are well digested and get into circulation quickly.  This makes a tablespoon of honey along with a cup of water an excellent pre-workout energizer.  And during a long workout, a tablespoon or two of honey also helps boost endurance (take it with some water).
  • Medicinal magic: Honey contains a series of antioxidants that may have some health-boosting properties. But it’s honey’s anti-bacterial properties that have made this sticky "ointment" a longtime favorite for treating burns and small wounds.  Certain types of honey are sold as homeopathic remedies for medical use. (Check with your physician before using honey on a wound, though!)
