Apples aren’t the only things you dip in honey.
The most commonly known tradition of Rosh Hashanah is dipping apples in honey. While this is highly revered and probably the most observed tradition, I am here to tell you that if you’re Jewish, you can and should have more honey than that tonight.
Dip your challah into honey. Make honey glazed carrots. Eat honey cake (like Max hopes to do). Not only are you supposed to do all these things anyway (find out the meanings behind many of the symbolic foods here), but what better way to ring in the new year sweetly than to go all out?
Here are some Rosh Hashanah recipes to help you out. And if these don’t do it for you, just guzzle down the whole jar of honey. Don’t be ashamed. Yes, we’re all being judged on this holiday, but I don’t think that would be a sin.
Cinnamon Honey Sweet Potatoes
Bistro Challah Bread (round challah)
Dried Apricot and Date Jam
You’re probably confused as to why some of these foods are on the list, so don’t forget to read the explanations.
And, for those of you who are Jewish, L’shanah tova u’metukah: Here’s to a good and sweet year! And for those who aren’t, have a good and sweet REST of the year!
