National Honey Month
Did you know that a single worker honeybee produces approximately 1/12 of a teaspoon of honey in her lifetime. That means around 22,700 bees are needed to fill a single jar of honey! The reasoning behind September being National Honey Month is because this is the month that bees are staying secure in their hives as they prepare for the winter.
Honey is not only used for food but it is also known to be a health aid. During ancient times, honey was used for its medicinal purposes so the next time that you have a cough, try reaching for the jar of honey to coat and soothe that throat irritation. Honey is even known to help heal canker sores and relive dry skin.
What's your favorite recipe using honey?
If you don't have a favorite honey recipe, join us on September 28th for Cooking from the Calendar. Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders are on the menu!
FALL IS IN THE WEATHER

September is the time to break out those fall decorations and get to making your house feel cozy!
