How to measure honey (and other sticky ingredients)

Have you ever needed just a couple teaspoons of something sticky, like honey, only to find that half of if stays stuck on your spoon? If the answer is yes, then you need to check out our special technique. Measuring sticky ingredients is a bit more tolerable when you need a larger amount because you can scrape nearly all of it out of your cup measure with a spatula, but when it comes to something really tiny, like a teaspoon, it gets tricky. Here's what you need to do: grease your teaspoon or tablespoon with a flavourless oil, like vegetable or canola. That's it! It sounds deceptively simple, but trust me, it works on everything from corn syrup to molasses. The oil creates a barrier between your sticky ingredient and your measuring spoon and you're using so little of it, it won't affect your recipe. How to measure sticky ingredients
