Bee Free Honee, a thick syrup made from organic apple juice, cane sugar, and lemon juice, has an impressively honey-like consistency and flavor. It differs from honey in having a seductive tang reminiscent of biting into a freshly picked apple. Perfect for vegans as it is not derived from actual honey. Bee Free Honee Original will be appreciated by any cook for its own distinctive and appealing flavor. Additional flavors, made by adding ingredients to the original recipe, include Ancho Chile, Mint, Slippery Elm, Red Curry, and Flower Pollen.

Use it to sweeten pies and cookies, drizzle over ice cream, yogurt, or cereal, or stir into hot tea. No recipe adjustments are necessary in substituting for honey. Made in the USA, where bee populations are stressed, the only input to Bee Free Honee from bees is in their pollinating the fragrant apple blossoms that made the apples from which Bee Free Honee was made.
