Celebrating National Honey Month
Posted Sep 16th, 2020
September is National Honey Month. This month was created to promote the beekeepers in the United States as well as honey. Honey bees are so valuable because they are pollinators of fruits and vegetables. Without them, products such as apples, cabbage, lemons, onions, or watermelon would disappear. Needless to say, those bees work extremely hard to gather enough nectar to make honey.
We’ve compiled ways you can use honey for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
For breakfast, try peanut butter toast. With two pieces of your favorite bread, add our Always Save creamy peanut butter. Top with sliced bananas and drizzle Always Save’s honey. Sprinkle a little salt on your toast to finish.
Grain bowls are a simple and healthy way to quickly enjoy lunch. Prepare by adding cooked rice with your favorite roasted vegetables such as brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, onions, and broccoli. Add protein such as turkey, chicken, or your favorite beans. Top with our honey mustard dressing with 2 tbsp of whole grain or dijon mustard, 2 tbsp of Always Save honey, and a half the juice of a lemon.
Our Honey Sesame Chicken is an easy meal to pair with white rice and broccoli. To create, combine 1 egg white, 1/2 cup Always Save all-purpose flour, sifted, 1/4 cup Always Save cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon Always Save baking powder, 1/2 cup water, ice-cold, 1 tablespoon Always Save Canola oil, and a pinch of Always Save salt. Drop in chicken cubes. Set aside.
Next, grab the honey to create the honey sesame sauce with 1/3 cup Always Save honey, 1 teaspoon Always Save apple cider vinegar, 1/2 tablespoon Always Save ketchup, 1 teaspoon sesame oil, 1 tablespoon Always Save corn starch, 1/2 cup water an 1 teaspoon Always Save salt. Set aside. Heat up a saucepan with about 2-in of oil on medium-high heat.
Carefully drop your chicken cubes once the oil Is hot. Cook until golden. Place chicken on a plate with a paper towel. Lastly, add oil to the same skillet and stir fry 2 cloves of minced garlic. Add the Honey Sesame Sauce mixture and simmer until thick. Drop in the chicken to coat. Serve with rice and your favorite veggies.
