15 Passover Recipes With Honey

Non Dairy Honey Nut Tart

Honey is my secret ingredient during Passover. It can be used in a variety of recipes – from entrees, to sides, to dessert – it is just so versatile. It provides balance to any dish complementing and enhancing a variety of foods and flavors, On Passover, we have to contend with a number of limitations and restrictions to our familiar recipes, but honey is easy to find and even easier to cook with. I love to cook with honey because it has a velvety texture and mouth feel that is completely unique. Honey is also a natural humectant which helps to lock in moisture and adds a rich golden color to both sweet and savory dishes.

Honey is all natural and the label should only list one ingredient – honey. Honey that is 100% pure is kosher all year long. On Passover, it is recommended to find honey with a reliable kosher for Passover certification to guarantee that it is actually 100% pure honey with no other ingredients or sweeteners. I also recommend that you buy honey in bulk, so you can enjoy so many fabulous and versatile recipes year-round. A miracle of nature, honey doesn’t spoil and can be stored indefinitely, so stock up!
