Shana tovah umetukah!
Today is Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. We offer the longer blessing because we love the meaning for cooks and eaters: a good and sweet year.
On Rosh Hashanah observant Jews will be serving apples, honey, sweet challah, pomegranates, and other new fruits to symbolize a sweet new year.
For more good eating and Rosh Hashanah coverage, we turned to our friends over at The Jew and The Carrot. Here are our favorite posts from their week of sweetness; vegan alternatives to honey, beautiful honey pots, oranges on the Seder plate, meaty advice and more below. Here are a few of the good pieces from our friends at The Jew and The Carrot.
