What is a honey and apple dish ? You can use this dish any way you want to even separate but I designed it for
American Jews usher in a sweet New Year by eating apples dipped in honey. The roundness of the apple symbolizes a hope that the year will be a joyous one from beginning to end. Apples may also be used in other holiday dishes, as long as the dish is sweet: During Rosh Hashanah, no bitter or sour food is eaten.
Apples were the traditional Rosh Hashanah fruit in northern Germany, Russia, Poland and the Baltic countries, the ancestral homelands of many Jews in the United States, according to cookbook author Rabbi Gil Marks. Not many sweet fruits grew there, but apples were the most plentiful.
In other areas, other fruits became part of the holiday tradition. Hungarian and Austrian Jews made plum tarts for Rosh Hashanah because Italian plums came into season right before the holidays.
Nonetheless, we celebrate the apple here -- touched, of course, with a taste of honey.
