September is National Honey Month!

September is National Honey Month, and what better time to celebrate one of nature’s simplest pleasures – honey!

More than ever, people are looking for natural ingredients and it’s hard to imagine anything more pure and natural than one-ingredient honey. Honey is a back-to-basic ingredient that people can feel good about using in both culinary applications, as well as finding new and innovative ways to use it.

“People are quickly realizing the uniqueness and versatility of this one-ingredient wonder,” said Bruce Boynton, CEO of the National Honey Board.  “Honey is no longer confined to the kitchen and culinary applications, as its versatility now spans to the medicine cabinet, beauty regimen and even the gym.”

Honey’s versatility is not the only thing that makes it unique. There are more than 300 varietals of honey in the United States alone, each with a distinct flavor profile and color based on the floral source where the bees collect the nectar. As a general rule, light-colored honey is milder in taste and dark-colored honey is stronger.
