    - cooking, uses it i/o soy sauce for my stir-fry chicken sometimes (marinade it first w/ honey)
    - non-egg home-made salad dressing, uses it as replacement for sugar, mixed it w/ apple/wine vinegar, olive oil, dry basil, salt & pepper
    - bread, just use it like jam

    Add it to apple cider. Put it in fridge for a while. It's refreshing.

    - you can add/mix it w/ lemon for marinating the chicken
    - you can use lemon to replace the vinegar & add dried chili flakes if you want it to be a bit spicy
    That too, though I add lemon & cool it in the fridge inside a sports bottle for the next day carry. The downside is that I must drink it within the day after a sip or two (from the bottle) otherwise it'll turn smelly (I think it's the reaction when honey turn into mead? I've read somewhere that the ancient Egyptian uses saliva as a reactive agent for it)

    I haven't read your comment before i cooked it but i did the honey soy chicken yesterday. Quite yummy and easy to do.

    Honey on bread tho, I'll pass. I don't like jams much either. It's sweet and overpowers the fruity flavor or the bread flavor.

    Sometimes when I'm too lazy to make my hot chocolate right, I mix cocoa powder with honey and pour milk. It's tasty.
    Or you can make riz-au-lait with it! Except that's for winter

    I find it to work just fine, but maybe not with a overly strong tasting honey like forest honey, or citrus flower honeys

    I put honey in everything~ sometimes supplementing or replacing sugar
    sometimes as binding agent or less sweet sweetener

    Actually, that may be the point: some people preferred their drinks got sweet taste but not as sweet as what sugars would give

    and difficult to know whether it's real pure honey or not.
    the one sells in supermarket is not pure honey imo

    Well, the premise of the post if you already have honey so I wasn't telling anyone to go spend their money on honey
    If Honey is expensive, I'm not telling you to go buy it, I'm just listing things you can use honey for if you want to finish the honey you already have, not to go out of your way to buy new bottles

    And I get honey from my neighbour, they keep bees so they give honey around :blobowoevil:
    In the times when I don't have honey, I just don't do all those stuff I listed, honey isn't a necessity/irreplacable anyway
    I happen to like faint sweetness rather than overpoweringly sweet, in starbucks or other places that sells boba or milkshake, I always find it too sweet and would always cut the sugar in half if I can

    Edit:
    Ah, do you mean for average people who want the sweetness? yea they may have to put in more honey or miz with caramel or sugar
    since the OP wants things to use honey for, I just tell them everything it can be used for

    if you want to taste the honey, use it as it is, as jam or eat with a cookie, or drink with ginger or lemon, drinks that use it as main ingredient.

    This one is from my sister: facial treatment
    Pre-pandemic, she & her friends opened a facial spa that uses honey as their base ingredient

    for someone who has a sweet tooth like me, honey feels pointless as a sweetener..

    Honey on biscuits or those cookies they sell in bags for "coffee/tea time" snacks?

    Dip some almonds, nuts or walnuts in honey?

    I dunno.

    Add butter, honey and hot sauce to hot pan. Coat your fried wings with the sauce and you got yourself easy-made buffalo wings. Add pepper and sesame seeds if you want
