Though honey is not a vegan food by definition, vegans can still enjoy the taste of it with products like Bee-free Honee and Heeni Dandelion “Honey.” But what if you can’t get those locally and, for whatever reason, buying online isn’t a good option for you? Here’s my answer! Make it yourself.
Now, I’m not suggesting that you harvest nectar from flowers, eat it then regurgitate it fifty times like a bee would. Just make/take some apple juice, mix it with sugar and a bit of lemon juice and boil it down! It’s really that easy. As proof, I give you this video tutorial:
Video Tutorial for Vegan Honey AKA Apple Syrup
This recipe came about because there was a new honey alternative on the market with awesome reviews but it wasn’t available in Canada yet! I had stopped adding sweetener to my coffee and tea because I honestly didn’t like anything other than honey in those drinks and honey was out of the question for me. Instead of hot lemon honey water, I had just hot lemon water. I was OK with it but if I could have something that tasted like honey but was vegan, I wanted it!
One day, I realized I had a bunch of apples to use up and I thought it was the perfect opportunity to give my own homemade “honey” a try. That single session created this homemade bee-free honey recipe. Since then, I had been meaning to film a video to show how easy it was. It only took a whole year for me to get around to it!
The whole process is pretty simple.
I hope you enjoy the video and maybe try it out sometime!
