How to make honey soufflé: technology
The manufacturing technology of this type of dessert is based on intensive stirring of the liquid bee product before the crystallization process begins. The most popular classical production technology involves pouring fresh bee product from honeycombs into a container and storage for 10 days at a temperature of + 14 ° C.
Then, in order to soften the bee product, it is stored for several days at a temperature of + 28 ° C, after which they begin to mix. For proper creaming, special equipment is used. This can be a dough mixer, a kitchen mixer, various nozzles on a drill.

According to another recipe, a fresh bee product is mixed with already settled (in the ratio of 9 to 1) at a temperature of +26 ... + 28 ° С. After 10-15 days of infusion at a temperature of + 14 ° C, the product acquires the desired consistency and white color.
Important! It happens that unscrupulous producers use initially poor-quality beekeeping products, violate the technology of preparation, resort to the addition of various reagents or issue an incorrect composition. The only way to protect yourself from fakes and not harm the body is to purchase souffles only from trusted beekeepers that you trust.
There is also a quick method of preparation: in a container in which a certain amount of cream soufflé is left from the previous batches, pour liquid honey and stir intensively for several hours at a temperature of +12 ... + 14 ° С. After 3-4 hours, the mixture is converted into a soft but thick substance.
Features of the preparation of whipped honey at home
To convert beekeeping products into cream at home, you will need a mixer, bowl and nozzles with wide spirals. Use liquid and solid honey in equal proportions. After setting the mixer at a slow speed, beat the mixture for about 20 minutes. Transfer the resulting mass to a cool place for 7-8 days.
Important! Do not whip honey at too high a speed. This is fraught with the fact that the final product will acquire a heterogeneous consistency.
You can make a honey dessert with the addition of fruits, berries, nuts, ginger, propolis and other components. In the finished creamy mass, you just need to add any of these ingredients that enhance the taste and aroma. The benefits of such a home product will be many times more.
