Sugar-Free Imitation Honey

HoneyTree brand imitation honey is available from the HoneyTree Company:

HoneyTree, Inc.
8570 Monroe Rd.
Onsted, MI
Phone: (517) 467-2482

At this writing, the minimum order is 12 bottles, but that will set you back only $22, not too bad, and it'll keep. Consider getting a group of low-carbing friends together to share an order!

At this writing, Carb Smart is also planning to carry HoneyTree Sugar Free Imitation Honey:

A Refresher on Measurements

Just in case these details have slipped your mind since junior high school home ec class:

3 teaspoons = 1 tablespoon
2 tablespoons = 1 fluid ounce
2 ounces = 1/4 cup
4 ounces = 1/2 cup
8 ounces = 1 cup
2 cups = 1 pint
4 cups = 1 quart
2 pints = 1 quart
4 quarts = 1 gallon

Help! I Use the Metric System!

The problem with being an American cookbook author is that your recipes end up being confusing to the vast majority of the world—namely, the millions of folks out there who don't use quarts, cups, teaspoons, and tablespoons, and whose ovens are calibrated for Celsius rather than Fahrenheit. That most of the world measures dry ingredients by weight rather than volume just adds to the confusion.
