If your honey has crystallized or is too thick, place the honey container in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes to loosen it up without losing its natural properties. This gentle method returns honey to its smooth texture, making it easy to pour or spread and enjoy.

Not sure if I can find frog legs easily, but if I do, I'll definitely give this recipe a try. Maybe I'll serve it with some spicy sauce.

Frog legs? Hmm, not sure about that, but since I'm a recipe searcher, I'm curious.

I might give it a try for an adventurous supper.

I've had frog legs at a restaurant before and loved them. Excited to try making them at home. I appreciate the tip about chilling the frog legs with lemon juice and ice.
