It's pretty obvious that we at the National Honey Board are big fans of September – and it's not because the heat of the summer is cooling off and we get to wear sweet fall fashions – but with the majority of honey being harvested during this month, we can all agree that September, also known around this hive as National Honey Month, really is the sweetest month of the year!

Where did National Honey Month come from? Well, the NHB has always recognized the importance of honey bees and the benefits of honey. So, in 1989, the NHB worked with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to give honey the praise that it's due and thus September was officially deemed National Honey Month.

If you have been following our blog or social channels for any amount of time, you constantly hear us singing the praises of honey for its versatility both in and out of the kitchen. We share all kinds of fun recipe ideas that WE love, both from our own database and those we find online, but this week we thought that it would be fun to comb through our website analytics to see what recipes OUR FANS love and share them with you. These recipes truly showcase all of honey's natural benefits, from culinary to beauty and even cough suppression, and we love to see that our readers are broadening their honey horizons to include more than just honey on their morning toast or in their evening tea.

So, without further ado, here are the top 10 most popular recipes of 2016:

  1. Honey Cough Syrup
  2. Chewy Honey Oatmeal Cookies
  3. All Purpose Honey Teriyaki Sauce
  4. Honey Simple Syrup
  5. Pumpkin Honey Bread
  6. Honey Lime Facial Treatment
  7. Honey Caramel Sauce
  8. Honey Chicken Wings
  9. Honey Glazed Shrimp

We hope that these sweet recipes will inspire you to branch out and use honey in new and exciting new ways.
