    Yes, but it depends on what you are canning. My books say 1/2 cup honey is equivelant to 1 cup sugar. Don't add the honey and boil your brine. Add the honey after the brine is boiled and removed from heat. What are you canning? I've made pickles and pickled eggs using honey. They both tasted good but the brine became ropey and cloudy. Make sample batches before going full throttle in your canning. Some honeys that have a strong flavor really comes out with the brine.

    Years ago my wife canned 40-50 quarts of peaches using honey. They tasted ok (I think normal canned peaches were a little better) but had a brown tint to them. They didn't look as nice a bright yellow peaches.

    I have the book "Putting it up with Honey" here at my store and it is a pretty good reference. Amazon sells it as Beeslave mentioned. There are a lot of fruit recipes. If you are looking to do any canning with honey I would recommend it.

    If you use Pomona's Universal Pectin instead of Surejell, the package includes recipes for jams and jellies made with honey.
