I just recently started cooking with the BB book and have found some recipes call for Sucanant and Sucanat with honey.  In their products I have found Sucanat cane juice, but what is Sucanat with honey?

Sucanat with honey is the same as honey granules.

I have ordered this from my Co-op and so it will be about a month before I get it.  Until then, for the recipes that call for Sucanat with Honey can I substitute White sugar?  I've been able to find Sucanat at whole foods but can't find the honey crystals anywhere and wanted to try some of those recipes for the holidays.  Thanks!

I have not seen the honey crystals anywhere but through the Beckers. Also, as a warning, I once bought "sucanat" from Whole Foods, and it was just not the same as what I got from the Beckers. It wouldn't dissolve for anything.

Here are the name variations:

Sucanat= molasses crystals, dehydrated/evaporated cane juice (replaces brown sugar)

Sucanat w/honey= honey crystals or honey granules

Hello, I just joined this group and have a question about sucanat with honey. I have read what you all posted with great interest. BUT, I have a recipe that calls for BOTH  sucanat and sucanat with honey. If the honey portion is just honey crystals then (1) Why wouldn't it say that? and (2) how do I adjust the portions? 1 cup sucanat and 1 cup sucanat with honey.

Any help will be most appreciated.

"Honey crystals" is just another name for sucanat with honey. Honey crystals (granules, sucanat with honey) are not the same as sucanat, or molasses granules. I wish the names would stop changing, but it depends on the supplier. Just remember the brown granules are a replacement for brown sugar and have a heavier molasses taste. The light granules have a lighter flavor and can replace white sugar. You can use them in the same proportions as white or brown sugar as called for in the recipe. I hope this helps!

Yes, most definitely. It was as clear as mud. Thanks

Sorry, I guess I didn't really answer your question the first time. Honey has different qualities than granulated honey. So if it calls for both, you should use both. Honey will add moisture as well as sweetness. Granulated honey will act more like white sugar.

Well, I used 1 cup sucanat and then substituted 3/4 cup sucanat and 1/4 cup honey. It worked okay. Not sure that is what the recipe intended, but it was the best I could do. They taste fine.
