Happy National Pancake Day! That’s a sidebar, since the focus of the blog today isn’t actually pancakes. What we’re talking about, however, could go in (or on!) your pancakes. September is also National Honey Month, so this post is all sweet, golden goodness.
This week, our feature is Gems of Gold with Honey, published by the California Honey Advisory Board. It includes a wide range of recipes for incorporating honey into classic recipes, as well as some dishes you might not consider. Even though it’s only 35 pages, you’ll find recipes for meat, poultry, veggies, salads, breads, drinks, desserts, cakes, pies, cookies, candies, jellies, and even relishes. So whether you want to cram honey into every element of a dish, or just use it sparingly, Gems of Gold with Honey has got you covered!
September is also National Biscuit Month, National Bourbon Heritage Month, National Breakfast Month, National California Wine Month, National Chicken Month, National Mushroom Month, National Papaya Month, National Potato Month, AND National Rice Month, several of which make a wonderful compliment to honey. So, you’ve got a few days left to celebrate the end of September and the start of autumn with some sweet dishes. Also, if you think September has a lot to celebrate, wait until we get to October!
