Apple and Honey

It's that time of year again. Sunset tonight will be the start of the Jewish New Year. I mentioned in previous years' posts that apple and honey is a traditional food for this time of year as it represents the hope for a sweet and fruitful year ahead. I'm going to add a wish for a healthy as well as sweet and fruitful year for my family, friends and all the lovely people who visit this blog.

And if you've never tried it do slice up an apple as the sun sets this evening, dip it in some honey and you'll wonder why you don't eat it every day of the year. It's delicious. Enjoy!

  6. Thank you for sharing what those foods represent together. How nice. I have never tried apples and honey, but as I have both in the house, I may well. Happy New Year to you, Rosalind.

  7. Half an apple is often my snack as I set off on my morning walk. Honey? Love it but the doc says no as I'm diabetic. I rarely have added sweetness on anything, but I met a lady of 93 once who attributed her longevity to honey - she ate about a jar a week!

  10. Yesterday evening came and went before I saw this. Hope I'm not too late - it's such a lovely idea. (Or have I got to wait a whole year?)

  17. Happy Rosh Hashana! I love honey, I'm convinced it keeps you young...Usually, I'll spread it on toasted bread, but I'm up for trying it on apples too!

    I hope that the new year brings everything you wish for yourself and your family.
