A Sweet New Year: Rosh HaShanah Treats

Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year, means it’s time to break out the apples and the honey! It is customary to enjoy traditional, symbolic foods to ring in a sweet, joyous, and prosperous new year during the two-day holiday!

Apples dipped in honey are standard Rosh Hashanah fare for symbolizing a sweet new year. We’re loving local Nagafu Fiji apples from Cuyama Orchards.

Honey
Our local, unfiltered, and unprocessed raw honey is drawn from Southern California’s abundant flora. Cold packed by hand, our raw honey has a creamy texture perfect for apple-dipping, cake baking, and all-round tasting! Kosher certified honey is available in our International section.

Pomegranates
For blessings as numerous as the seeds in a pomegranate, we’re all about this autumn Roasted Squash, Pecan, & Pomegranate Salad by the Minimalist Baker.

dates

Dates are one of the sacred foods enjoyed on Rosh Hashanah, and we understand why! Sticky sweet with a dusky, earthy flavor, dates are naturally delicious. For even more of the sweet stuff, try one of these tasty recipes from Coachella Valley’s own Joolies dates, kissed with their extraordinary date syrup.

Honey Cake
This extra moist, lightly spiced cake is a classic Rosh Hashanah staple. Every family has their secret ingredient (tell us yours in the comments below). We’re drooling over this recipe from the Brown Eyed Baker!

L’Shanah Tovah! Wishing you a sweet new year!
