Head of the Year Snack (*Rosh HaShana)


  • 1/2 Apple per Person (approx.)
  • 2 Tbsp Quality Local Honey per Person (approx.)

Summer is over and fall has begun. While we we mourn the lack of sunny pool days here in the North East, the time has come to enjoy apple picking and many other fruits and vegetables that our orchards and farms offer before the winter. The best apples you will find are those grown locally (as they haven’t had to endure shipping and changing temperatures). Either go apple picking or support local vendors at your farmer’s markets or stores. Honey as well should be organic and carefully chosen. The more local your honey, the more benefits you will reap. (e.g.- less sensitivity to airborne allergens). Choose organic to avoid the concentration of pesticides found in the other varieties.

As you can tell, this is a vegan/vegetarian snack. It is also gluten free, dairy free, egg free BUT it is not the lowest in sugar. Even though it is natural sugar, the honey should be added in moderation.

For the Jewish New Year, Rosh Ha Shana, we suggest this traditional snack and wish you a sweet, happy, healthy and delicious New Year!
