September is extra sweet because it’s National Honey Month!
Honey is a true super food. This delicious, all-natural sweetener has been used as food and medicine for over 8,000 years! Along with adding sweetness, honey is a great source of energy and can quickly sooth a sore throat. Raw, local honeys are wonderful for seasonal allergies.
Even though honey is made from one simple ingredient, it is anything but simple! Different honeys have different colors and flavors depending on where the bees collected the nectar.
Make the most of this sweet nectar by visiting the National Honey Board to learn more about honey and search for the perfect honey recipes to sweeten your September.
