Herb Infused Barbeque Honey Glaze
1 cup honey
2 Tablespoons dried Ginger
1 Tablespoon dried Rosemary
2 teaspoons dried Thyme
Put honey into a sterilized jar. Place the jar into a double boiler over low heat. Gently heat for 10-15 minutes or until honey is runny. Mix in dried herbs and stir well. Allow honey to infuse for 1-2 hours on LOW heat (we like to use a crockpot with water for the double boiler and keep it on the warm setting). Keep an eye on honey to make sure it never boils. Remove infused honey from double boiler. Strain through cheesecloth or a fine mesh metal strainer. Bottle in a decorative jar and label! Pair with a new set of grill tools to make this a great summertime grilling gift.
