The Mess-Free Way to Measure Honey

Because it belongs in the bowl, not stuck in a measuring cup

The more viscous an ingredient, the more of a nightmare it is to measure for cooking and baking—and there’s practically nothing stickier than honey. So the next time you need to include it in a recipe for a dish like sweet glazed wings or rosemary honey, try this simple trick:

Coat your measuring scoop with oil before measuring the honey.

Once you do that, the honey will slide right out of the measurer into your bowl or pot. Even better: If the recipe you’re using calls for oil, measure that first, and you’ll already be slicked up and ready to portion out the honey.

This also works on equally sticky ingredients like nut butter, corn syrup and molasses, so go forth and make quick breads, pecan pie and milkshakes with ease.
