The Jewish New Year is almost upon us and we’re hoping for a sweet, sweet, sweet 5784! It wouldn’t be Rosh Hashana without apples and honey on the table. This is how we’re including the traditional ingredients in our menu this year. 

Apple and Honey Glazed Chicken

If you like some sweet with your savory, this chicken is the perfect dish for the main course. Marinade chicken pieces in a mixture of apple cider, honey, minced garlic, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast in the oven until fully cooked and glazed. Serve with rice to soak up that sticky sauce.

Apple Cinnamon Rugelach

Apples and cinnamon are a classic combo. Make a rugelach dough using cream cheese and roll it out. Mix together apple butter, honey, sugar, and cinnamon, and spread it on the dough before cutting into triangles and rolling them up. Pop the rugelach in the oven until they are puffed and golden.

Apple and Spinach Salad

Who says fruit doesn’t go in salads? Combine baby spinach leaves with thinly sliced apples, crumbled feta cheese, and candied pecans. Finish off the salad with a tangy honey-mustard dressing.
