Honey + Apples = True Love Forever

Take a dip with a batch of fresh apples and Sue Bee® honey

Honeybees love apple trees. And apple trees love honeybees. It’s a symbiotic relationship that produces two of our favorite foods: honey and apples.

The bees favor apple trees as a forage source for nectar, which they bring back to their hives where it is used to create that golden goodness we know as honey.

Apples require cross-pollination, and honeybees – the most common pollinator for apple trees – provide that service by moving pollen from tree to tree. 

So why did we bring you here for this “the more you know” moment? Because September happens to be National Honey Month. And September is also the most fruitful month for apple harvests. Because honey and apples go so well together, we’ve gathered three of our favorite apple-dipping recipes – all of which include USA-made Sue Bee® honey. Enjoy!
