Honey Pots for Rosh Hashanah

It seems that Rosh HaShanah (the Jewish New Year) snuck up on me. It is less than a month away and here I am, not having posted any honey, apple, or pomegranate recipes! While I frantically work to remedy that, I present a new type of post to you – shopping and housewares!

Honey pots are generally a pleasant thing to have and at the HHD (as I like to call the High Holy Days) they are even lovelier. There’s nothing quite as festive as a platter of apples and honey.

 

My requirements for a honey pot are:

  • Nice looking – utilitarian is fine, but these should never be unsightly.
  • Lid – Left uncovered, honey will attract the wrong kind of visitor.
  • Space for spoon or honey stick – to try to keep stickiness to a minimum.

This is my round up of honey pots (or things that could be used as a honey pot) from around the internet and my first foray into collage making. I’ll improve, I promise!

 

Nosherium Honey Pot Round-Up

 

Top Row (left to right):

  • Unlikely Symmetry Sugar Bowl – $88 – At the absolute upper end of the price range, this stunning bowl is made from different porcelain pieces for an quirkily elegant showstopper. (2017 update: No longer available, but check out these similarly colorfully elegant options)
  • Revol Sauce Pot$19.99 – Lovely and minimalist, with clean lines and a choice between glossy white and slightly matte black. (2017 update: No longer available, and I couldn’t find a similar pot. This black and white set with three bowls is a nice, affordable option.)
  • Godinger Jam Jar with Spoon and Tray$24.61 – A sleek metal and glass option for those with a pared down aesthetic. Bonus points for the included tray! (2017 update: Still available! YAY!)

 

Middle Row (left to right):

  • Bee Honey Pot$12.00 – Whimsical and sweet, rendered in unfussy white earthenware. (2017 update: No longer available, but check out this similar option)
  • Handmade Black and White Porcelain Honey Pot$30.00 – Modern and insanely cool, this pot is handmade in the USA. Check out the coordinating little bowl for slices of apple. (2017 update: No longer available, but check out this similar option and these pretty mini bowls!)
  • White Porcelain Honey Pot with Dipper – $9.16 – A tall, classic shape that will go with just about any table setting. (2017 update: Still available! YAY!)

 

Bottom Row (left to right):

  • Cute Fox Sugar Bowl$38.58 + $8.05 shipping- I just can’t get over this adorable little fox bowl. It’s a bit pricy, but think of all its uses! Sugar bowl at afternoon tea, supporting an independent artist, and literally sweetest jollifier to lift your spirits. (2017 update: Still available! YAY!)
  • Copper Kinley Sugar Bowl$24.95 – Copper is having a design moment and I like this bowl’s gentle curves and squat shape. (2017 update: Still available! YAY!)
  • Handpainted Romanian Honey Pot$16.80 + $14.60 shipping – A traditional blue and white pattern that would be at home with modern or traditional dinnerware. (2017 update: No longer available, but check out this one by the same maker – and it’s on sale!)

 

Stay tuned for recipes and another round up early next week of more budget honey pot options and other useful holiday serve ware!
