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:

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.

  38. Helen greenberg says

    Love to use honey in so many things- like mixing with some brown sugar and sprinkling on butternut squash. Bake it up, it’s delicious

  39. I do not use sugar so I often bake with honey. I always use it in my spelt challah and sometimes in my oatmeal cookies (sometimes I use date syrup from Israel and or maple syrup)
    I teach 4 year olds at a day school here in Memphis and right now we are doing an intense study of bees. The kids are putting on their bee costumes and flying around the “hive”. Bees are the most fascinating creatures. I am totally fascinated by them – notice my e-mail address, probably cuz my Hebrew name is Devora!

  45. My kids like honey in a very complicated form on Rosh Hashanah – on their fingers!

    I toast Israeli couscous in a pan with two tablespoons of oil. Then add two cups of very hot/boiling water, at least two heaping tablespoons of honey, a little salt and pepper and cook covered on low for about 20 minutes or until all the water is absorbed. Yummy! However, my favorite thing is the Honey Lekach (cake) that my Mom makes for the whole family. SUPER YUMMY!!!

  47. I like to pour honey on a frozen gefilte fish loaf before baking.

  48. Because the crisp East Coast autumn nights haven’t reached California, I like a cool fruit salad with the apples, kiwi, grapes and toasted walnuts tossed with a dressing of honey and lemon juice and the zest of the lemons.

  49. liked the National Honey Bd. Also love the Honey/Mustard Salmon recipe.
