Rosh Hashana at least in the kitchen is all about Apples and Honey. Sure grandma’s honey cake is a great treat once a year and those apples dipped in honey are fun for the kids. And who doesn’t like getting to dip their Challah in honey to ensure an extra sweet New Year? I know I look forward to it but there has to be something more we can do with it that really carries that wish for a Sweet New Year into the other foods we cook for the Holiday something more inspiring for us and our guests? I decided to find some great honey recipes and put them all in one place to inspire you to create your own Colorful Kosher Holiday meal.

One of the most well-known food customs on Rosh HaShanah whether you are observant, not observant or just have a few Jewish friends has to do with dipping apple slices into honey. Some people buy an assortment of various kinds of honey and allow their guest to experiment with which flavors most appeals to them while others favor that cute little bear filled with Golden Honey. Did you know that honey has some great “hidden” qualities to it. Honey will sooth your stomach so save some of that honey for after the big meal!
