Vanilla Bean Apple Honey- The Secret Recipe Club

Another month of the Secret Recipe club. Last month I was excited to join my first reveal. I made this Maple Mouse in Maple Cookie Cups. It was so good!

When I received my assignment this month I was over the moon. It was a blogger I <3, and someone I look to for foodie inspiration. When I first starting my facebook page Heather, from Farm Girl Gourmet was one of the first pages I started following. When I was trying to gain followers she was one of the first who gave my page a shout out telling her readers to come check out my page. Thanks to her and other fellow blog facebookers my facebook went from 50 fans up to close to 2,300 fans in only a couple of months!

Heather's recipes and photos make me seriously hungry. I've been wanting to make these Chocolate Cheesecakes since Valentines Day.... I need a reason to make them! Then these Oxtail Tacos... I've never had oxtail but have been wanting to try it for a long time! I also have some Rhubarb left in the fridge I'm thinking I'll be making this Crumb Cake later this afternoon!

I spied her Pear Vanilla Bean Honey on the blog earlier this month and I pinned it knowing I NEEDED to make it. THEN I received my assignment for the Secret Recipe Club... What better timing!

I did adapt her recipe for my own personal taste and what I had for ingredients on hand. I used apples instead and substituted the sugar for honey. 

Vanilla Bean Apple Honey 

3 ripe apples quartered
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup honey
1 vanilla bean split and seeds scraped
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp lemon zest

In a medium sized pan add in your apples and water.

Bring to a boil and then turn down to low and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the apples are very soft.

Remove apples and liquid and place in a food mill. In a separate pan add in your pureed apples with your honey, lemon juice/zest, and your vanilla bean.

Bring back up to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for another 20 minutes, or until it is a golden color and has thickened. Pour into canning jars or other heat proof containers.

Serve on toast, bagels with cream cheese... we spread it on our bananas! It is so good!
