September is National Honey Month, and honey is the star on the menu this time of year at Lockwood Restaurant inside the Palmer House Hilton.

They get fresh honey right from the rooftop to make a variety of dishes and dessert.

Sous chef Valeria Benner shares how to make the popular honeycomb brittle.

Recipe for honeycomb brittle:
Half cup white sugar

3 tb honey

2 tsp baking soda

1 pinch cinnamon

-Cook Honey and sugar on medium heat until it reaches 300 degrees or hard-crack stage.

-Watch carefully and do not allow to get darker than a light to medium amber. If it starts getting dark quickly, turn down the heat to slow down the process.

-Remove from heat, mix the spice into the baking soda and then add to the candy mixture.

-Spread onto wax paper and allow to cool completely.

-Crack into piece and enjoy on ice cream or by itself.
