Homemade Honey-Nut Jars

Here's a great way to create your own, homemade Rosh Hashana gifts.
Every year I make these mouth-watering honey-nut jars as gifts for family and friends.
They are simple to prepare, and everyone loves them.  They are perfect for your Rosh Hashana table, and go perfectly alongside apple wedges, or as a topping over fruit, yogurt, and many desserts.
Here's what you will need:
  • 4 ounce glass jars with tight-fitting lids
  • honey
  • your favorite variety of nuts (I use cashews, pecans, and almonds)
  • cinnamon
Lightly toast the nuts in a toaster oven or in a frying pan, and cool.
Place the nuts in the bottom of a glass jar, filling the jar about 1/3 of the way.
Sprinkle some cinnamon over the nuts.
Pour honey over, filling the jar.
Seal the jar tightly.
Wrap with decorative ribbon or cellophane.
These beautiful gifts literally take just a few minutes to prepare. This year, I've made mini versions, and have one to place at each of my guest's place setting on Rosh Hashana.
