I hope your September is off to a good start. It’s hard to believe Rosh Hashanah is just three weeks away.
I’ve rounded up some great new Rosh Hashanah items and included some old favorites.
Are you cooking anything new for the holiday? Any modern twists in how you’re celebrating? Please share!
Mouth Foods is the leading source for awesome indie foods. Their Rosh Hashanah gift pack is the perfect host gift to bring to a Rosh Hashanah dinner or Break the Fast. It includes light golden honey from “free range” bees, honey bee rock candies, sesame peanut brittle and Brooklyn Sesame’s reinvention of Halva along with irresistibly crisp, seed-studded crackers.
I love these beautiful honeycomb cookies from Chai and Home. Have you checked out this terrific blog yet? It’s one of my favorites – filled with great recipes, crafts, entertaining ideas and more! Dena’s got you covered for beautiful Jewish living.
Joan Nathan’s Alsatian Pear Kugel with Prune Compote is a great side with brisket and is always a crowd pleaser. (I use pears in place of the prunes.)
This Cinnamon Apple Pie from Monday Morning Cooking Club is my favorite apple cake. It’s pareve, easy-to-make and delicious!!!
I’ve been baking Deb Perlman’s Fig, Olive Oil and Sea Salt Challah for years for Rosh Hashanah. It’s the best!!! This year, I’m following the YouTube tutorial below in hopes of getting my challah to look more festive and fancy.
