Rosh Hashanah

Festive Appetizers for Ringing in the Jewish New Year — Recipes from The Kitchn

Rosh Hashanah is often called the Jewish New Year.

Unlike New Year's Eve, Rosh Hashanah, which falls in the autumn (this year on September 20), is less focused on countdowns and party hats, and more on all things sacred and familial.

Recipe: Honey Custards with Caramelized Apples — Rosh Hashanah Recipes from The Kitchn

Honey and apples are the most well-known foods eaten on Rosh Hashanah — the Jewish New Year — for nothing is more symbolic of a round, sweet year than apples and honey. No Rosh Hashanah meal is complete without a plate of apple slices passed around to each guest, followed by a bowl of honey; slices are dipped, the prayers said, and apple slices slippery with honey are eaten amid shouts of "L’Shanah Tova! Happy New Year!"
