I FREAKEN HATE HONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my gosh..........I just finally realized that I friggin HATE honey. I HATE IT!!! This is really weird, I know. I don't dislike many things where food is concerned. In the last couple of months I had been experimenting w/granola's and some whole wheat baked goods w/mulitgrains and flaxmeal etc. Everytime I made most of these items I was not liking them. They ALL had this one background taste to them. I couldn't figure it out........was it the whole wheat??? was it the flaxmeal??? Were the ingredients tastes changing after they were warmed in the oven. I normally like whole wheat, I normally like multigrains, I have flaxmeal in my juice everyday..........what was making this taste???? hmmmmm Tonight I made these sweet potato muffins that have a glaze and a pecan praline crumbled on top. I went to take a bite and this hideous taste YET AGAIN........well there was no whole wheat, no multigrain stuff, no flax, no wheat germ...............VOILA..........it is the honey. All these items were made w/honey. It was quite apparent in this sweet potato muffin that it was the honey. I FREAKEN HATE HONEY, Holy Crap!!!!!! At least now the mystery is solved. Whew! Anybody have any good substitutions for honey out there????

Honey-I DON'T LIKE HONEY EITHER! Used to have a honey goo for running-sticky nasty tasting stuff. Gave it away! Brown Sugar is my sub.

Lol! I am falling off my chair laughing! You are too funny. How about agave syrup, maple syrup or brown rice syrup. They're all sweet, but don't have that "in your face" honeyness. OOOOH, I just thought of something. What about Lyles Golden Syrup. It is a British product, but available here. Really tasty!

Thanks Sticky....I thought about maple and the agave but have never tried the agave. Brown Rice Syrup would fall into one of those freakish vegan categories...how in the hell does one get a syrup from a little bown speck of nothing??? they beat the hell out of it until it pisses itself apparently. They can get away with it because it is a piece of rice and not an animal. Figure the rice doesn't scream when clubbed. The lyles sounds interesting....golden syrup sounds tasty.
