Late summer and early fall’s sweet and tart bounty are harbingers of cooler temperatures, the start of school, and for me, the Jewish New Year. Jews who celebrate nothing else often head to services for the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) and/or the upcoming the day of atonement (Yom Kippur).
Here’s the reason in a one-two-three homily of the day. Instead of saying “Happy New Year,” folks gather in fancy dress-up clothes at services or suppers and wish each other a good and sweet new year. Apple and honey are both good and sweet. Good and sweet — why both?

Here are some delicious dishes and snacks made with these two ingredients that can grace any fancy table for dinner, breakfast or a snack.
Best wishes for a good and sweet New Year to everyone!
