New Recipes for the New Year

Experiment with Apples & Honey

As Rosh Hashanah approaches, all we can think about are apples and honey!

Rosh Hashanah - “head of the year”- commemorates the creation of the world. Traditionally, apples and honey are eaten to represent our hope for a sweet year of health and peace. Dipping apples in honey is delicious, and here are few creative recipe suggestions to help kick this duo up a notch:

Apples, Honey, and Goat Cheese Crostini 
Bread and cheese make everything better! Recipe here.

Fried Apples with Honey and Cinnamon
Move over beignets! There’s a new fried dessert in town. Recipe here.

Apple Crisp
Temperatures may not be dropping, but fall is approaching!  Kick off the new season with a crisp. Recipe here.

Apple, Fig, and Honey Tart
Figs are also customarily eaten to celebrate the start of a sweet new year. Recipe here.

Honey-Apple Cake
This is cake you can eat for breakfast!  Anything made with fruit is healthy, right? Recipe here.

Share any of these dishes at Rosh Hashanah dinner or Yom Kippur break fast and you are sure to delight the crowd! May these recipes help usher in a Shana Tovah Umetukah  - a  “good and sweet year” for you and yours.
