Did you know that September is National Honey Month? Today's post is pretty “sweet”, so be prepared to indulge. Just like all trends, there is always so much to keep up with in the way of food. Honey is quite a popular “trend” this year, so I decided to team up with editor-in-chief of The Glutton's Digest, Lindsay, to share these wonderful honey recipes fit for every meal and occasion. When it comes to food, Lindsay searches the globe for the best-of-the best, and I am not exaggerating. She's been known to cross state lines for a meal, or even just a cupcake!
We wanted to learn more about honey and all its wonderful properties, so we set out on a “sweet” journey touring Savannah Bee Company‘s flagship store in Savannah, Georgia. We learned all about bees and honey, while perhaps over indulging in a taste testing of numerous varieties of honey. As Lindsay says in one of her posts, “By comparing the texture and taste of each honey, it becomes clear that honey, like wine and coffee, has its own set of complexities.“
Honey Recipes for Every Meal
Once we tried all the different honeys, Lindsay incorporated Savannah Bee Company's honey into everyday cooking with these wonderful honey recipes for every meal and occasion. She also incorporated many other amazing artisan food products made in the USA. Luckily I was there to taste test all of her creations. Click on the title of each of the honey recipes for instructions and ingredients. You can find all of Lindsay's honey recipes for every occasion on The Glutton's Digest.
Breakfast: Prosciutto Breakfast “Beescuits”
Prosciutto Breakfast “Beescuits“ featuring Olli prosciutto from Mechanicsville, Virginia and Savannah Bee Company's Tulpelo honey, which is sourced throughout the USA. I cannot tell you enough how much I loved this dish. The sweetness of the honey with the saltiness of the prosciutto make for a satisfying meal. Olli's prosciutto is my new favorite. My family is from Parma, Italy which is where prosciutto is cured in Italy. I've eaten Italian prosciutto during my travels to Italy, but I still have to say Olli's is my favorite, especially since it doesn't taste as salty.
Lunch: Sticky Grilled Cheese with Apple and Sriracha Sauce
Sticky Grilled Cheese with Apple and Sriracha Sauce featuring Savannah Bee Company’s Raw Honeycomb, Cheese Honey, and Tupelo Honey and Kelchner’s Spicy Sriracha Sauce, which is made in Dublin, Pennsylvania. I really encourage you to try this recipe. It's so amazing! Note:

Appetizers: Savannah Bee Honeytizers
Savannah Bee Honeytizers featuring Savannah Bee Company’s Raw Honeycomb and Chuao's Spicy Maya Chocolate Bar made in Carlsbad, California make for a really sweet decadent treat.
Dinner: Spicy Honey Chicken
Spicy Honey Chicken featuring Savannah Bee Company Honey for the Grill. This is one of the best chicken marinades! The chicken is moist, tender and flavorful. If you have leftovers from it, the chicken tastes like a healthy version of eating sesame chicken from a Chinese takeout, minus the sesame seeds.

Do you have a favorite way to enjoy honey? Do you go out of your way to find American-made or local honey? Tell us in the comments.
These sound like yummy recipes! I use honey instead of sugar in my homemade sourdough bread. I also enjoy it on biscuits or toast. We have someone that uses bees from our property, we get our honey from them. That’s about as local as you can get! 😉
Sticky Grilled Cheese with Apple and Sriracha Sauce sounds AMAZING!
I like to use honey in my raisin bran muffin recipe. I’d love to check out this company the next time I’m in Savannah.
Honey is a staple in my household. With that said, I love the Sticky Grilled Cheese with Apple and Sriracha Sauce recipe. Thanks for sharing!
Honey and BBQ ribs done on the smoker — one of our faves!
All of these recipes look great! I can’t wait to start to try making these recipes.
All of these recipes look so good. I love, love, love the taste of honey.
I use raw honey in my coffee every morning. 🙂
Honey Chicken is my favorite. I will have to try the recipe for Honey For Spicy Honey Chicken.
We always look to our local growers for all that we can. Pure honey is always the best in our house!
I love using honey in my tea and even coffee. It is nice to find some recipes to use it in too.
OK, I’m salivating all over the keyboard. I guess I’m “on trend” because I’m all about raw, local honey lately. Those breakfast biscuits look like heaven!
One of the best dishes I ever had was in Italy: fried pecorino cheese drizzled with honey and sprinkled with pepper – heaven!
That’s the best way to buy it, Amy! I buy mine at Whole Foods, but it’s always from local Virginia honey farmers.
MMMmmm. I love honey. I get mine at my local farmers’ market.
I’m glad you both enjoyed the post! There are more honey recipes coming. Next time they’ll include alcohol! 🙂
wow thank you!!
Grilled cheese with honey? What a wonderful concept! I spend a bit of time in Greece every year and some of the best honey I’ve ever had – but I’ll sure give Savannah a shot!
