September is National Honey Month!
Honey has a lot of uses. It's been around since the earliest civilizations including the ancient Egyptians and Greece. Trust me, a little honey goes a long way so I thought I'd share some cool facts about honey and bees with you. I hope you enjoy National Honey Month!
Almonds rely 100% on honeybee pollination.
Apples, avocados, blueberries, cranberries, cherries, and sunflowers rely 90% on honeybee pollination.
Honey can taste different based on the flower and insect.
Honey is a safe and cheap alternative to use as a cough suppressant.
Honey is a natural energy booster.
Bees fly at 15 mph.
A Queen bee lays up to 1500 eggs a day.
I don't have very many honey recipes, but I do like to put it in my tea and use it as a cough suppressant. Do you use honey in your cooking? Do you have and recipes or tips you'd like to share?
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to enjoy a nip of honey this month.
