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!

  4. I would love to win the honey giveaway. We make a special effort to use honey all the time around the holidays, from tea, dipping challah, putting it in all our baked good and even just doing a honey tasting party, which is a lot of fun since there are so many different types of honey now. I would love this basket! Shana Tova! I love my kosher on a budget emails!

  49. We eat honey with challah not only on rosh hashana so this would be great!

  50. I guess honey cake is my favorite use of honey, and every year I have to try to remember which recipe I used the year before since I don’t make it any other time. One recipe I like is a fluffy honey cake that requires separating the eggs. I guess I could use some more honey recipes!
