Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is a two-day celebration that usually falls around mid- to late-September or early October. The food customs of this cheerful holiday involve sweet foods to symbolize hopes for a "sweet" new year. Traditionally, a blessing is said over challah bread, and apples are dipped in honey while saying a prayer for the year to come. Pomegranate seeds are another common food consumed during the holiday, as each seed is meant to symbolize all of the good deeds that you will do in the next year. Whether you're planning on celebrating the holiday or not, embrace these seasonal recipes and the coming of a new start.
