Getting Honey Out of a Measuring Cup

At last, lose that sinking feeling when reading “measure a 1/2 cup of honey…”

Anything sticky is just plain hard to measure. You pour it into the cup, then you pour it into your bowl or pot, and a thick coating is always left inside the measuring cup, drip drip dripping, but never fully getting out of the cup.

The answer is easy, as you’ll see in the video. This trick works with honey, maple syrup, molasses, sorghum, any thick sticky liquid. It also works with teaspoons and tablespoons, not just cups.
