HAPPY NEW YEAR! Today is the start of the Jewish New Year. Very similar to secular New Year’s, except with less cheap champagne and more apples and honey. But equally as fun! Much like every Jewish holiday, there are customs and symbols for the day. On Rosh Hashanah we typically eat pomegranates, dates, beets, and the most popular apples and honey. This tradition comes from the practice of eating sweet foods for a sweet new year.
Well I don’t know about you, but I want my year to be a little sweet and also a little spicy too. So I added green chilies to my rustic Green Chili Apple and Honey Galette. I live in Texas after all! The result is a slightly savory tart ideal for ringing in 5774. L’shanah tova!
