A jar of honey is the perfect favor for Rosh Hashana. Wish your guests a “sweet” new year by buying local jars of honey from your farmer’s market. Attach a honey dipper to the bottle with a ribbon tied around the lid of the jar. Add a homemade label, if you like, with the year (the Jewish New Year is 5769 for 2008) and a greeting. These are also super practical favors, as your family and friends will have local honey to use throughout the year.
Honey dipper are available at many stores. Crate and Barrel sells simple wooden honey dippers individually for under $2 each – http://www.crateandbarrel.com/family.aspx?c=752&f=12956.
