    • 140g liquid glucose
    • 400g sugar
    • 75g clear honey
    • 2tbsp baking soda
    • 5tbsp water


    • Firstly, line a baking tray (a shallow one if you have it) with parchment paper.

    • In a large saucepan (heavy-based ones are best), put the liquid glucose, honey, sugar and water. Heat the mixture gently and stir from time to time until you see the sugar dissolving.

    • Turn up the heat and let the mixture cook until you see it transform into a light golden colour.

    • When it changes colour, blend in the baking soda – you’ll see the mixture turn into a foaming mass and at this point, pour it into the parchment paper-lined baking tray.

    • Let the mixture cool for about an hour. When it has cooled, break up the honeycomb using the end of a rolling pin. You can store the honeycomb in an airtight jar until you need it.
