This easy Vegan Honey Recipe creates sweet light-colored nectar with a fruity flavor that has a hint of earthiness like honey harvested in the fall. With a few simple ingredients, you can make your own vegan honey to satisfy your sweet tooth.
1tablespoon lemon juicefresh-squeesed. *note, you only need this if you could not find chamomile tea with lemon
Bring apple juice to a boil in a medium saucepan.
As soon as apple juice reaches the boiling point, remove the pan from the heat. Place your chamomile with lemon tea into the apple juice. Allow the tea to steep for 5 minutes. *note, if you could not find chamomile with lemon add fresh lemon juice.
Remove the teabag and bring the heat back up to medium-high so you have a low boil simmer.
After the syrup has simmered for 20 minutes start checking it every few minutes for desired thickness. To check the desired thickness, let the syrup drip from a chilled metal spoon. If the drippings are forming a string-like thread it is done. This may take 25 to 35 minutes. Your goal is to reduce the liquid by 1/2.
Allow mixture to cool to room temperature and then pour into a glass jar with a lid.
Be sure to keep your stove on medium heat during the reduction. You need to have a slow simmer for it to reduce properly to the desired consistency.When testing the consistency of your vegan honey test it using a metal spoon. If it clings to the spoon and drips soft strings that float in the air a bit then it's ready.The easy way to infuse an authentic honey taste is to have chamomile tea with lemon. If you can't find it with lemon, add a tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice to your apple juice.
