September is National Honey Month! Why does honey get a whole month and not a day? Who knows!? But since 1989, beekeepers and their bees have been celebrated during September, a month when honey collecting winds to a close for the year in many parts of the U.S.
I’m always looking for a reason to celebrate, aren’t you? Why not do some exploring with your kids and find out more about honey and its uses?
Taste-test different varieties of honey – raw, wildflower, clover, orange. Typically the darker the honey the more intense its flavor. Seek out local honey if possible. Maybe you can even meet a beekeeper! See which honey you and your kids like best.
