TIP OF THE DAY: Honey Sticks

If you like honey but are tired of cleaning up the sticky drips, try honey sticks: plastic straws filled with honey. The no-mess packaging is easy to open; the honey squeezes out with no drips.

This fun and tidy way to serve honey dispenses single servings to anyone who wants some in their tea, on biscuits, on pancakes and so forth.

Honey also dissolves more readily than sugar in cold drinks such as iced tea and lemonade.

Oregon’s Nature’s Kick Honeystix makes honey sticks in a nice selection of varietal honeys: blueberry blossom, buckwheat, fireweed, meadowfoam, orange blossom, pumpkin blossom, raspberry blossom, white sage and wildflower.

There are also flavored honey sticks: cinnamon, lemon, lime and mint.

Each straw contains about 2/3 teaspoon honey: enough for one six-ounce cup of tea (excluding the milk).

A natural product loaded with beneficial vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants, honey in stick form can also serve as a nutritious, on-the-go energy snack.
