Can agave nectar be a substitute for honey?

I don't have any honey for my Chinese pork marinade. Do you think agave nectar or maple syrup will caramelize in the same way? And have the same glazing properties?

You can substitute agave equally for honey

I think either would work but you need less agave than honey as well.

Thanks! I'll let you know how it works.. I used slightly less than was called for as I was worried about the strong maple flavours being overpowering.

I would probably go with the maple syrup.
