It’s National Honey Month!

Check out the National Honey Board at www.honey.com for great recipes with honey!

“A pound of honey is the result of millions of beautiful flowers from hundreds of different species of plants, shrubs, and trees. Each variety of nectar producing flower yields its own unique honey; the honey may vary from almost “water white” in color to “dark amber.”

Each variety of honey also has its own unique taste and oftentimes its own delicate aroma. Used in recipes, varieties of honey may produce ever so slightly different flavors. It is no wonder that chefs and bakers the world over love to cook with honey. Honey is natural; honey is always pure; indeed, honey is a sweetener the way nature intended.

This time of the year, beekeepers are busily harvesting the honey crop made by bees over the spring and summer. It is such a special time for the honey industry that September has been traditionally known as National Honey Month.”

Haagen-Dazs has a great site called Help the Honey Bees, check it out! You can learn more about saving bees, especially by buying a carton of their amazing ice cream, sorbet, or frozen yogurt!
