When you start running low on honey, the last few drops are usually too hard to extract from the jar to make them worthwhile. Instead of throwing the jar away though, use it to make a refreshing jug of traditional lemonade.
Melissa Clark’s recipe puts that throwaway honey to great use, especially on a hot summer weekend. Just add a little lemon juice to the jar, and shake it all up. The acidity of the juice will help loosen up the honey so it comes off the edges of the jar. Once it’s all mixed in, the honey acts as a great sweetener for the lemonade. Once everything’s well-mixed, pour a little bit of the mixture into a glass, stir in water, and enjoy! If it came out too sweet or too bitter, just add sugar or lemon juice until you’re satisfied with the taste.
