It can be hard to get the last bit of honey out of the bottle, particularly if the bottle is shaped like a bear (so many crevices). Luckily, the amount of sweet and sticky stuff hanging out in the bottle is the perfect portion for a simple vinaigrette.

It’s also very sticky, which means getting those last seemingly insignificant bits out of the jam jar requires some creative problem solving. Luckily, ethanol is quite the solvent.”]
Just as we used booze to wash the sides of almost empty jam jars, we can use vinaigrette ingredients to dissolve the honey clinging to the insides of our plastic bears. Just pour a quarter cup of oil, two tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice, and one tablespoon of Dijon mustard into the bear, along with any herbs or seasonings you desire.
Close it up, shake it until the honey dissolves, and use the bear’s convenient spout to disperse the dressing on a pile of greens, some roasted vegetables, or a veggie-heavy rice bowl.
