Thanksgiving is Sweeter with Honey

Sage and Thyme Honey will add some distinct and delightful flavors to your Thanksgiving meal. As you start planning the menu, consider the following ideas for adding these wonderful honey varieties to your table.


  • A fairly mild honey, sage will pair nicely with milder cheeses such a chevre, fontina or gouda. Place the cheese on a small slice of fresh french bread (such as a baguette) and drizzle with some honey.
  • This recipe for Sage and Honey Cornbread comes from Epicurious. Use sage honey in the recipe for an even better result.
  • Fried Squash with Sage Honey, Parmesan and Pickled Chiles is a winning combination, courtesy of Food & Wine.


  • Thyme honey has bolder flavor notes that include dried fruits (think raisins, dates and dried apricots). It pairs well with a stronger cheese such a blue, manchego, or smoked gouda.
  • Another delightfully good appetizer is Lemon-Thyme Bruschetta, from the blog Kitchn. Fresh thyme, thyme honey, ricotta and lemon zest. Mmmmmmm.
  • Easy-peasy Roasted Butternut Squash with Thyme Honey. Thank you Rubarbarian blog!
