Fall into The Healing Powers of Honey Book this New Season! Back to Press for 15,000 Copies in 1 Month!

 Honeymania for Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

National Honey Month is a celebratory and promotional event held annually during the month of September. Its purpose is to promote US beekeeping, the beekeeping industry and honey as a natural and beneficial sweetener. The awareness month was initiated by The National Honey Board (a US government established, USDA-overseen, organization) in 1989. September is significant for honey producers as it is the month that marks the end of the honey collection season for many beekeepers in the United States. *

Blend ingredients together until they are thoroughly mixed. Equally distribute the sweet potato mix into the pie shells. Place some aluminum foil on and around the edges of the pie shells so the crust will not burn when the pies are baked. Place pies in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool completely before serving. Serve with whipped cream. Makes 2 pies/16 to 20 servings. *Author's note: Use less sugar for a healthier pie!

 Since the honey bee and mankind are connected because of our food chain, it makes sense to dish out a spoonful of honey trivia to show you just the honey bee is a un-bee-lievable man’s best friend (click for amazing trailer). Take a look at these ten factoids that’ll get you thinking about the amazing small creature and what it can do.

1. The average honey work bee makes a mere 1/12 teaspoon of honey in her lifetime.
2. Utah is known as the beehive state.

4. A honey bee must tap about 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey.
5. On average, each person in the United States consumes about 1.31 pounds of honey each year.
6. The USDA estimates that there are approximately 3 million honey producing colonies in the United States.
7. It would take about two tablespoon to fuel a bee’s flight around the world.

Here is a perfect recipe to whip up and savor with a cup of tea and honey as you fly away with me on a journey into Honeyland.
