There are plenty of other tasty sweeteners out there that you could try. Real maple syrup is a little less thick and sweet than honey, and more expensive, but really tasty. Make sure you get actual, 100% pure grade A maple syrup instead of the "maple flavored pancake syrup" or whatever they call it. There's also apple syrup, which is basically just apple cider boiled down until it becomes a syrupy consistency. I'm sure you can find other syrups made from fruit juices, or make them yourself (grape syrup? strawberry syrup?) These obviously won't be perfect substitutes; if you use them in recipes, you'll have to take into account different sugar concentrations, and they don't taste like honey, but they are tasty, all-natural sweeteners that can be be used in cooking or as a condiment.

My son is allergic to honey. Is Agave Nectar something that can be drizzled on biscuits in the same manner as honey or is it more of a substitute for in a recipe? Thanks, Kimberly
