Rosh Hashanah is now less than a month away, have you started planning your menus yet?  If you're lucky, maybe you are eating some of your meals out.  Whether as a hostess gift for someone else or a fun new addition to your High Holiday table, these honey themed finds will sweeten your year.

It's always nice to bring a gift when someone invites you to a meal, but the typical red or white bottle of wine can get a little boring and cute little tchoktes take up space and are not appreciated by everyone. I mean how many honey pots can a person break--er--I mean get as a gift. Fine, if you are like me maybe you appreciate a new honey pot every year, but we want to think of gifts that also go beyond the pot, but are still related to the holiday.   

My feeling is no one can have too much actual honey, did you know it doesn't go bad?

Jamie Geller Silan

Dates are one of the simanim for Rosh Hashanah because of a play on words with the Hebrew word for dates, but wait there's more. 

Did you know that the reference "land of milk and honey" (Exodus 3:8), according to many sources, refers to date honey? Date honey, date syrup or silan, is a staple in Israeli cooking, and adds a rich, delicately-caramel like sweetness to many dishes. Our date honey also happens to make the perfect Rosh Hashanah gift.
