Apples and Honey

As we celebrate Rosh Hashana (the Jewish New Year) and Yom Kippur (the Day of Repentance) I find myself grateful for the apple tree in my neighbor's front yard. Traditionally for Rosh Hashana we eat apples dipped in honey -- apples to symbolize the round earth and honey for a Sweet New Year.

Besides eating apples & honey, it's traditional to prepare sweet dishes with apples. I was visiting Little Green Bums the other day and discovered her link to a recipe for apple cake over at The Inadvertent Farmer. I can't wait to try it...

Wishing you Shana Tova -- a Sweet, Good Year...
