Rosh Hashana Giveaway #2 | Honey Gift Basket Giveaway

When I was brainstorming a list of ideas for Rosh Hashana giveaways, something-having-to-do-with-honey naturally topped my list.

Only I don’t didn’t have any “honey connections”.

Imagine my delight when I saw that the National Honey Board was one of the sponsors of a blogging conference I attended earlier this month.


And wouldn’t you know that the first thing I did (well, second, after sampling their incredible honeys) was to chat them up about sponsoring a giveaway on KOAB!

I’m happy to announce that one lucky Kosher on a Budget reader will win this gorgeous honey gift basket (retail value: $100), which includes:

  • 3 Honey varietals (these honeys are incredible – and the difference in flavors is amazing!)
  • Canvas tote bag
  • Honey recipe books (and check out all their honey recipes online!)
  • Water bottle
  • Honey candle
  • Orange blossom honey sticks
  • Honey drizzler
  • Honey spatula
  • Honey lip balm
  • Honey notepad and pens
  • Honey apron
  • Guide to substituting honey when cooking and baking magnet

Here’s how to enter the Honey Basket Giveaway:

(Remember, each comment is considered its own entry – so leave a separate comment for each one.)

Required entry: Leave a comment telling me your favorite way to incorporate honey into your Rosh Hashana cooking – beyond apples and honey (eg. bake a chocolate honey cake)

Optional entry #1: Like the National Honey Board on Facebook to learn more about honey – and find out about their giveaways and contests. Then let me know you have done so.

Optional entry #2: Follow my Rosh Hashana Pinterest board, where I share links to recipes, crafts and vignettes that are perfect for the holiday (including lots of honey ideas). Then let me know you have done so.

This contest will be open until the end of the day on Wednesday, September 5, 2012. The winner will be notified by email and have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen. Hatzlacha!

    I’m not late, I swear! I just got power back a few days ago! and have been wanting to enter during this whole derned hurricane! Anyways…

    Last year I made a honey apple cake that was incredibly perfect… not only do I wanna do THAT again, but also I want to try a honey glazed crispy skinned duck… Think it’ll work?

  32. I hope I am not pushing my luck by trying to win something on your site! ; )

    I put honey in my sweet and sour MEATBALLS for Rosh Hashana, which is the perfect entree for a two-day chag. I make and freeze the meatballs as I find the meat on sale, and then make a big, big pot of sauce, and they get eaten gradually over the whole chag.

    I liked the Honey Board and your RH Pinterest board!
    Shana Tova u’metuka and lots of continued hatlzacha with your fabulous blog.

  33. Susan Reingold says

    I use honey in my entire Rosh Hashana meal….honey chicken, sweet noodle kugel, carrots and taigeleh. The meal is reminiscent of my holiday meals with my grandparents and my parents. I am a second generation Holocaust survivor. I want my children, their spouses and my grandchildren to remember our traditions.
    Thanks and Happy New Year!
