Some of the folks on my Christmas list are getting honey dipper jars … canning jars with wooden tops and honey dippers.

Rather than use the metal ring and lid that comes with the jars, I used plastic Ball Regular Mouth Jar Storage Caps. They form a tight seal and can be refrigerated, frozen or stored.

The wooden dippers are maple, finished with Bee’s wax.

Each one include my business card with use and care instructions printed on the back.

Full disclosure: These jars are based on a project by Steve Krumanaker. Here is a link to Steve’s Youtube video which shows in detail how these are made:

Now you just have to fill them with real (not store bought—bought from the beekeeper) honey!
