It’s officially here, and well underway, in fact. September is National Honey Month and we are celebrating all month long with some really sweet partnerships! But before we get into all that we have going on in the month of September, we want to take a moment to remember why we celebrate honey.
Did you know that National Honey Month is just as much about honey bees as it is the honey they make? It’s true! The National Honey Board (NHB) has always recognized the importance of honey bees and the benefits of honey, so in 1989, the NHB worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to give honey the praise that it’s due and thus September was officially deemed National Honey Month. Why September? Simply, it is the month when the majority of honey is harvested in the United States.
In addition to the added attention National Honey Month brings to the honey bees, honey as an ingredient is also worth celebrating. This time of year, we really get to celebrate all things honey, from the more than 300 unique varietals (and that’s just in the U.S. alone!) to its versatility in the culinary world. From keeping your baked goods moist (and extending their shelf life) to balancing flavor in cocktails, honey is the one ingredient that spans the entire menu! You can learn more about honey’s natural benefits here.
This year we have brought along some of our friends and fellow honey lovers to celebrate National Honey Month with us.
