Sometimes while looking at recipes I can see how some of my organic products have overlap with other ingredients. For instance, in this recipe for Bourbon Chicken. The recipe called for ginger, brown sugar and honey. I know that maple syrup is a sweetener and has the consistency of honey so it would probably work in this recipe. I took those 3 ingredients out and added my organic ginger maple syrup which is much healthier. I have even tried it with smoked syrup which worked quite well too. You don't have to swap out taste for organic.
