"This is a great syrup for pouring over gingerbread, but it is wonderful on almost anything. For best flavor, poke holes in the cake with a fork before pouring syrup."

This syrup went wonderfully with Honey Cake I. I did substitute some of the honey for marmalade because it was less expensive but it still had a great flavor and consistancy.

It wasn't bad. But way too sweet for my family.

Yum! This is sweet and actually tastes quite strongly of lemon/citrus. It is very light tasting at the same time, in fact if you put it on a cake or pancakes - like I did, on Buttermilk Pancak...

This one is very tasty, but also VERY sweet, so don't pour too much... I tried it with pancakes and it was a perfect match.

Perfect for French toast or pancakes here in Spain, where you just can't find maple syrup! A couple times I've just used honey and lime sorbet and zapped it in the microwave--same thing. Yum.

If you have any leftovers, you can make lemon honey tea. Its great for the winters or when your sick. Also my family and I used it on waffles. Delicious.

This is a simple syrup, but very tasty. I made this to drizzle over slices of angel food cake. I used a mild Acacia honey and added a small splash of fresh orange juice in addition to the lemon....

It wasn't bad. But way too sweet for my family.

Wonderful alternative to sugary store bought syrup. Love the citrus flavor! And..you don't need a whole lot to get the sweetness you vwant!

This was DELISH! Used this on Belgian waffles and it was awesome. Kids loved it. You need very little to get the flavor because it is strong.
