Honey-lime chicken wings combine sweet, sour

Published: Thursday, August 14, 2014 at 01:57 PM.

Chicken with lime juice and honey has a nice sweet and sour taste. Use the lime juice to taste, the more lime juice the more sour the taste. I sometimes add a little lemon juice to the mixture to soften the twang to the taste. Experiment with the best flavor for your taste.

Strawberries are still plentiful in the stores and there are so many recipes for this tasty little fruit. Macerating the fruit adds a new sweetness. Adding sugar to this process brings out the strawberry’s natural pectin, which is perfect for making jam. Adding a little balsamic vinegar, which makes the berries a brighter red, and/or crushed rosemary or other herbs give a new dimension to the flavor of this fruit. The longer the berries macerate, the richer and more intense their flavor becomes. Adding some sugar or vanilla makes it perfect for toppings on other desserts.
